Internationally Renowned Psychologist Philip Zimbardo presents free webinar
Internationally renowned psychologist and Palo Alto University professor emeritus, Philip Zimbardo, will explore the psychology of both evil and heroism as it relates to the many feelings and concerns of social injustice that have arisen during the global pandemic in a free webinar on July 10, at 10 a.m. PST, 1 p.m. EST. The webinar is open to the general public.  
Zimbardo is recognized as the “voice and face of contemporary American psychology” through his widely seen PBS-TV series, Discovering Psychology, his classic research, The Stanford Prison Experiment, and his popular trade books on shyness.  He is the author of the oldest current textbook in psychology, "Psychology and Life", now in its 19th Edition.  He is also the past president of the American Psychological Association, the Western Psychological Association and served as the Chair of the Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) representing 63 scientific, math and technical associations (with 1.5 million members). 
In this webinar, Phil Zimbardo will review the core principles of social injustice in psychological terms and present research-based ways to understand and respond to them.
During the webinar, participants will also preview Zimbardo’s newly developed program, the “Zimbardo Systemic Engagement” program. The ZSE offers participants an opportunity to learn and practice evidence-based resilience skills, as well as ways to make sense of and effectively engage a variety of situational and systemic issues. Information about this new PAU-sponsored course will be forthcoming.
“This webinar will strive to inspire participants to come together as a community of care,” said Zimbardo. “It will highlight the benefits of contributing to a more just world by practicing applied skills of well-being and an inspiring socio-centric focus.”
