A key distinction is the perception of incompatible goals (conflict) by individuals or groups versus coercive actions (violence) in pursuit of those goals. The sources and consequences of conflict and violence are explored. Then three points of intervention are examined: during the (1) conflict, (2) violence, or (3) post-violence phase. Emphasis is placed on thoughts, feelings, and actions that can prevent violence, deescalate violent episodes, and reconcile relationships in the aftermath of violence. 8 Peace Psychology II Positive Peace: Promoting Structural and Cultural Peace Comprehensive peace means not only the prevention of violent Comprehensive episodes (Peace Psychology I) but also the creation of a more equitable social order that meets the basic needs and rights of all people (Peace Psychology II). This course explores positive peace, which refers to social and cultural transformations that reduce structural violence, an insidious form of violence that kills people slowly through the deprivation of human need satisfaction. Emphasis is placed on concepts and psychological processes that are sources of structural and cultural violence. In addition, the course examines ways of reducing social, racial, gender, economic, and ecological injustices as well as the kinds of thoughts, feelings, and actions of individuals and groups that promote socially just arrangements. Methods of building and sustaining peaceful relationships are also explored. 9 Peace Psychology I Course Outline I. Introduction to Peace Psychology II. Conflict and Violence A.
