A follow up to Schneider’s groundbreaking book, The Polarized Mind, The Depolarizing of America is an essential read for those who are striving for social healing and positive collective change.
Our nation needs healing dialogues—especially now!
In the wake of the coronavirus, many of the issues dividing us as a nation and world—such as politics, race, class, gender, climate change, globalism, and religion—have only been magnified, and although the U.S. Surgeon general has called for an end to bickering and partisanship, it is unclear to what extent this will take effect. What is clear, however, is that safe, mindfully structured dialogues are imperative if we are to salvage our republic and the democratic principles on which it is built.
“The book draws on my experience with humanistically oriented conflict mediation groups and provides practical, structured formats for both laypeople and professionals to use in a variety of settings, ”
