How can we even begin to solve many of society’s problems if our conversations keep breaking down? Polarisation has been growing for decades, and supercharged by social media filter bubbles.
This is the first in a series of films from Rebel Wisdom looking at the science and psychology of polarisation. We speak to Alex Evans, a former government adviser now looking at the roots of division through the Collective Psychology Project: https://www.collectivepsychology.org/
Also to superstar trauma specialists Dr Stephen Porges, Peter Levine, Gina Ross and Steve Haines about how our nervous system is intimately involved in assessing safety and threat, and how that underlies all conflict and polarisation.
