Next TU Talk: How to stop arguing

The next installment in the TU Talk series at Thomas University will be “Cognitive Strategies to Stop Arguing” presented by Bill Milford, Chair of the Division of Social Work, at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25.

“Arguing is a form of communication that has a goal of persuasion or winning,” Milford said. “When arguing becomes a habit where you are no longer either communicating well or getting what you want – you can start to become aware of its costs – namely the deterioration of a relationship.”

Milford utilizes the foundation set by Dr. Mike Nichols in the bestselling book “Stop Arguing with Your Kids.”  In addition to presenting Nichols’ approach, Milford will also explain how and why cognitive strategies are perceived to be so effective.

“A cognitive strategy such a Nichols’ attempts to help people become mindful of their argumentative nature, and provides an alternative to rebuild your relationship, while not sacrificing your power.” Milford explained.

TU Talks are free and open to the public. The TU Talk will be held in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Main Campus.
