Ever wondered why you have had clear facts rejected? Ever had a simplistic argument repeated back to you even though there is no evidence to support it? Ever heard the statement “the truth will out”? How do you deal with these situations?

Reframing is a technique which enables you to work with another party to put your point across without reinforcing their existing preconceptions. Facts alone do not change people’s opinions. It may surprise you, but in many cases presenting clear facts actually reinforces people’s existing misconceptions. How we reframe establishment propaganda is perhaps the biggest single challenge facing us in working for independence.
Without effective reframing much campaigning effort is not only ineffective, it can actually be counter-productive.

On Wednesday 23rd May 2018 we will be hosting a Reframing session will introduce the concepts of Framing and Reframing, and relate them to the current situation in Scotland. The session will take place from 7pm until 9pm in the One Wellwynd Centre, 35 Wellwynd, Airdrie, ML6 0BN. This session is aimed at groups and individuals, and we would be delighted if other groups across North Lanarkshire (and beyond) would join with us. Admission is free, although donations towards the cost of the evening are more than welcome.

The session will be presented by Bill Dale. Bill has had an enthusiastic reception from activists for his reframing sessions. Bill has led multi-national culture change programmes and project-managed implementation programmes on a range of issues, from technology to new product launches.  Bill has built on his extensive experience of developing and running countless training and development programmes in Europe, UK, the USA and the Far East and is now applying those techniques to the campaign for Scottish self-determination and we look forward to benefiting from his experience.

Some further reading required...
