Catalysis:  How to Slow Down or Abort Humankind's Leap to War

– by Alice MaherM.D.

Thursday, May 31st, 2018; 2:35 pm - 3:25 pm

1 CEU   (#25)

Abstract:

There is a major paradigm shift in human understanding and human discourse. My goal is to intrigue you, coax you to think, and eventually behave in new ways, while ultimately convince you to become a part of a movement that will lead to a new way of communicating across human divides and find creative solutions to intractable problems.

Learning Points:

At the end of this educational activity, its participants will be able to: 1) analyze why existing conflict resolution and empathy models are ineffective in resolving conflicts of identity; 2) discuss “transformational moments" described in history and literature that can be utilized as a conflict resolution methodology.
