This unit explores the psychological dimensions of cultivating peace, by assisting individuals and communities to evolve emotional resilience and empathic capacities to minimise aggression, violence and war. For those already trapped in cycles of violence, we examine the psychological mechanisms of trauma, addiction and violence and how they can be transformed into healing and well-being.
