Science of Human Connection

Course is designed as an introduction to the science of human connection & its promise to advance solutions to pressing societal problems. The science of human connection reveals that: 1) humans are, by nature, empathic & need to be in close relationships; 2) there is a “crisis of connection” rooted in a modern culture that distorts our humanity & perpetuates stereotypes leading to disconnection; 3) the “crisis of connection” has negative individual & societal effects, & 4) individuals can change the culture through initiatives that address directly this crisis of connection.
