Group Dynamics and the New Heroism Weekend Workshop

We will conduct a one day workshop in Berkeley, California, which will introduce participants to the teaching method developed by Philip Zimbardo and Bill Roller in their 2014 Berkeley Civic Courage and Heroism Experiment, which was captured in the 6-hour video series, Group Dynamics and the New Heroism: The Ethical Alternative to the Stanford Prison Experiment.

In this workshop, eight individuals will learn the group dynamics of creating and participating in the formation of a group whose members act in concert with one another, courageously and nonviolently, to defend an ethical principle or people in need – even at possible risk to themselves.


Who should attend?

Leaders who want to develop the skills and learn the method of group formation that actively resists scapegoating as a group norm, becomes socio-centrically bonded, and creates a project that requires collective nonviolent action in pursuit of an ethical goal.

Especially designed for Peace and Justice and social activists who want to form specific task groups committed to work together and develop plans to take nonviolent courageous action in the public interest.
