Event Details

Common Ground Speaks along with the Morristown-Beard School is pleased to welcome Catherine Sanderson for a presentation entitled, “Merely Bystanders: The Psychology of Courage and Inaction,” on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 7:30 pm via Zoom.

Using empirical research from psychology and neuroscience, Speaker, Author, and Amherst Professor Catherine Sanderson will examine the factors that lead most of us to stay silent in the face of bad behavior, and how the tendency to stay silent allows such acts to continue. She will describe how to overcome the very natural human tendency to remain bystanders and practical strategies for resisting such pressure in their own lives.

The 45-minute live presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Admission is free, but registration is required. Prior to the event, a Zoom link to join the presentation will be sent to all registered attendees. To register, click here. To ask Ms. Sanderson a question, click here.

Common Ground Speaks is a consortium of parent associations of independent schools in the Central/Northern New Jersey area that works in collaboration to bring education, information, and inspiration to our community.
