Strategies for Human-Human Interaction

Topics include inter-personal interaction dynamics, uncomfortable situations that might arise and how to react, the pros and cons of relationships with your fellow graduate students or department faculty, in the workplace, dealing with isolationism (i.e., “being the only one”), techniques for inclusion, and family-friendly policies to look for in a working environment.
