This course introduces the psychology of human violence—its roots, causes and effects on individuals, groups and societies—and the psychology underlying successful efforts to build cultures of peace in individuals, families, communities and societies. Each week is structured to explore certain key concepts/issues. Topics to be addressed include: psychological and psychosocial theories and research on the causes and effects of human aggression and violence; psychosocial approaches to violence prevention and recovery; and psychological foundations for building peace at the individual, group and international levels. The course will combine lectures, readings, critical discussion and reflection aimed at increasing understanding of these topics and their implications for practice in settings affected by conflict, violence and fragility.
