INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOHISTORICAL ASSOCIATION’S 45th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Group Identity and the Sources of Conflict

Virtual event on Zoom

Political, racial, religious, and other large group identities and belief systems are being challenged as never before in our era of globalization.  Conflicts include white supremacism vs. multicultural solidarity; resurgent patriarchy vs. gender diversity and equality; authoritarianism vs. democracy; science denial (on pandemics and climate change) vs. science-informed policy and activism; and more.  Some of the questions we ask are:

- How should we understand the psychodynamics of conflict in its many forms?
— What are the sources of group identities in childhood experience and later socialization?
— How can we handle conflict to facilitate individual and collective healing?
