The Maryland Judiciary Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO) Presents
An Evening With . . . Stephen Kotev
Conflict Resolution in the Age of Trump - The Conflict Paradox of the Righteous Mind
What did we miss? How did this happen? Join Stephen Kotev as we discuss how our moral foundations influence our outlook on politics and conflict. We will explore the work of Bernie Mayer’s The Conflict Paradox and Jonathan Haidt’s The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion and how these texts help us better understand those who hold beliefs different from our own. We’ll also examine how our own conscious and unconscious biases inform our practice as Conflict Resolvers.
