“This conference will explore the ‘Science of Human Goodness’ and how empathy, compassion, and kindness
are hardwired in the brain and are essential for human survival,” according to conference organizers. Attendees will “learn how to cultivate empathy and compassion in (their) students; discover how to reduce bullying and suspensions; and examine new ways to strengthen compassion, cooperation, collaboration, and achievement in children and teens.”
Among the featured speakers are James Doty, Dacher Keltner, Paul Bloom, Michele Borba, John Medina, Kelly McGonigal, Shauna Shapiro, Katherine Reynolds Lewis, and Jamil Zaki.
