Abstract

This research examines the impact of the Sustained Dialogue (SD) program on the experiences of student participants. Specific attention is paid to changes in the students’ social aptitude skills including empathy, assertiveness, and confidence. The SD program emphasizes establishing connections across identity-based barriers such as race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. Changes in these areas are also examined. Our research shows, among the majority of participants, that the SD program has improved social aptitude skills and helped to overcome social identity-based barriers.
