LACONIA — A political psychologist will be give a talk on ways to promote more civil discussion on current political issues at a program scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, at 11 a.m. at the Taylor Community's Woodside Building.
Dr. Krisan Evenson is a political psychologist and teaching lecturer in Plymouth State University's Social Science Department.
Evenson will talk about the impression that today's political discussions are constant debate with no resolution. In this climate many avoid conflict, while others contribute to the cacophony. Meanwhile, many young people have turned away from political institutions toward those organizations they view as more constructive.
The program is part of collaboration between Meredith Village Savings Bank, Taylor Community and Plymouth State University, designed to bring educational and entertaining programs to Taylor residents and the greater Lakes Region area.
