Creating a More Peaceful Society

CREATING A MORE PEACEFUL SOCIETY BY CONFRONTING THE ORGINS OF VIOLENCE Ronald Goldman, Ph.D Sunday, June 7 12:30 pm, Parish Hall Why is the U.S. one of the most violent developed countries in the world? We recognize the problems of violence but generally seek to treat its symptoms with, for example, better gun control, security, and protection. While these are important, is there a better way? What about prevention? What makes people violent? You will learn the root causes of violence and how to contribute to peace in your family and society. Be prepared to question some of your cultural assumptions. Ronald Goldman, Ph.D. is a psychological researcher, speaker, and writer. His work includes hundreds of contacts with parents, children, and medical and mental health professionals. He has a particular interest in perinatal psychology and serves as a peer reviewer for the Journal of Prenatal & Perinatal Psychology and Health.
