Why Humans Hurt Each Other (and what we can do about it)

Thursday 29th June 2017

1.00pm - 2.00pm

8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ

 

We want to believe that there are some things we would never do. We want to believe that there are others we always would. But how can we be sure?

 

Why do human beings hurt other human beings – and what can we do about it? 

 

The celebrated human rights barrister and researcher Dexter Dias QC has identified ten ‘types’ of human behaviour; ten deeply ingrained evolutionary drives, which provide tools for decoding the best and worst that humans do.  They are the people we become when we are faced with life's most difficult decisions. But who or what are these Types? Where do they come from? How did they get into our heads?

 

Combining cutting-edge neuroscience, human rights and social psychology, Dias examines the very frontiers of the human experience with the aim of uncovering new ways to reduce the sum of human suffering.

Chair: Leyla Hussein, psychotherapist and award-winning campaigner.
