Violence: The Question of Our Age

  • June 19, 2015
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

CEUs: 2

Instructors:  Judy Shaw

Assaults, shootings, domestic abuse are fixtures on television and in our culture. Violence seems to be the only avenue to equality. This discussion will explore the cost of violence. What is it like to hurt someone? To be hurt? Drawing on her experience with veterans of several wars, as well as extensive research into the increase of violence in ‘everyday’ American life, Ms. Shaw will examine the cycle of shame and honor in this primitive, deeply rooted human behavior. Participants will come to understand the increasing rate of violence in our culture; understand the use of violence as an attempt to equalize/neutralize a feeling of shame; and consider proactive ways of resisting violence.
