Can violence and conflicts be prevented..?

(Deshappriya Nanayakkara)


The Roots of Peace Psychology are often traced to William James and a speech he gave at Stanford University in 1906. Peace Psychology is a subfield of psychology and peace research dealing with the psychological aspects of peace, conflict, violence and war.

Peace Psychology consists of four interconnected pillars as research, education, practice, and advocacy with action. Where there are intentions there are often conflicting and contradictory situations.

Contradictory situations related with the intentions of life, are inextricably linked with each other. The knowledge of Peace Psychology is very important in preventing violence in preventing conflicts and emergence of conflicts.
