The increasing political turmoil in the United States has had a powerful and divisive impact on college campuses. Disputes regarding the recent presidential election have bred hatred and distrust between those of competing political persuasions. As a result, colleges and universities attempt to educate their students on the political process and global issues. Following this political awakening, many young adults return home for holidays and find themselves at odds with the beliefs of their parents. This video was designed to inform students of the best way to communicate political differences to their family members. The authors utilize a short case study, a theoretical framework, and student-friendly resources to present the necessary information in an accessible fashion.
