The Way Out: How to Overcome Toxic Polarization

Alliance for Peacebuilding

Location: Online

Surveys show that Americans have become more fearful and hateful of supporters of the opposing political party and imagine that they hold much more extreme views than they actually do. How can we loosen the grip of this toxic polarization and start working on our most pressing problems?

Join AfP on June 16th to hear from social psychologist Peter T. Coleman as he discusses ideas from his new book, The Way Out: How to Overcome Toxic Polarization. Coleman will explore how conflict resolution and complexity science provide guidance for dealing with seemingly intractable political differences and discuss principles and practices for navigating and healing the difficult divides in our homes, workplaces, and communities to better our lives, relationships, and country.
