6 Hours | 6 CEs

This on-demand professional training program on Zimbardo Systemic Engagement is presented by Philip Zimbardo, Ph.D.

This program exposes participants to cutting-edge, evidence-based perspectives on well-being, diversity and inclusion, systemic engagement, social justice heroism, resilience, prejudice, the power of unjust situational forces and how to resist them, values congruence, growth mindset orientation, and socio-centrism. The program builds on a rich fund of literature, primarily social psychology perspectives reliant on Professor Philip Zimbardo’s life work, as well as many other lines of research.

These perspectives have been adapted to a friendly psycho-educational format in order to facilitate new insights about well-being, our shared sense of humanity, and the nature of systemic engagement. This is not a clinical program, and it is not psychotherapy. Rather, lessons in this program are presented in the format of psycho-educational lessons to increase intellectual understanding of topic matters, as well as one’s sense of resilience, self, and social awareness, care for yourself and for those around you, and recognition and acceptance of our shared humanity. This program strives to facilitate further exploration of opportunities to connect more deeply and more effectively with various people in your personal and professional social spheres.
