The Mind/Brain Center on War and Humanity
Why are there such vast differences in how people perceive threat from strangers?
What makes some people capable of great acts of forgiveness to promote peace whereas
others are consumed by hatred? Why do some victims of war trauma succumb to post-traumatic
stress disorder, whereas others move on as before, and yet others experience post-traumatic
growth? Assuming we find the answers, how can we best translate our discoveries into
clinical practice, educate our students and the public, and prime decision-makers
to create effective, evidence-based policy solutions?
