Me in brief:

  • I coach people in clearing anger, bitterness & other negative emotions. I'm keen to be evidence-based about this, but in this field, evidence is often fuzzy, and experience is an important guide.
  • I've worked in sustainability knowledge-sharing.
  • I know about wikis, and help run Appropedia, the sustainability wiki.

A communication sequence

(Work in progress. Suggestions appreciated.)

What's happening in your reasoning brain:

Social aspects of communication (or is that a tautology?):

Emotion and making sense:

Understanding and being understood:

Biases, heuristics and fallacies that affect communication:

Disagreeing:

Online communication (for further exploration)

  • Text-based communication
  • Dealing with trolls

Dealing with negative emotions

(Againstness, noticing)
