*DIGITAL* Merely Bystanders: The Psychology of Courage and Inaction
October 7, 2020
Brooks Memorial Library
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 Poler Family Professor and Chair of Psychology at Amherst College, and author of Why We Act: Turning Bystanders Into Moral Rebels.Register to attend this free event.
