Amherst College psychology professor Catherine Sanderson examines the factors that lead most of us to stay silent in the face of bad behavior, and how this tendency to stay silent allows such acts to continue. Sanderson will provide practical strategies that we can all use to speak up and take action.

Catherine Sanderson is the Manwell Family Professor in Life Sciences (Psychology) at Amherst College, and author of The Positive Shift: Mastering Mindset to Improve Happiness, Health, and Longevity.
