Internationally acclaimed conflict resolution facilitator, Associate, Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard Univeristy, and author of Dignity: The Essential Role It Plays in Resolving Conflict, Donna Hicks, Ph.D., describes how dignity is the motivating force behind all human interaction. Whether it's in families, communities, the business world, or at the international level, people have the desire to be treated well and with dignity. Donna Hicks points out that if dignity is violated, then the result is aggression, violence, and hatred. Without dignity, the human connection disappears. Donna Hicks offers people an understanding of dignity, which is little understood, despite its universal desire. Donna Hicks examines the gap in the understanding and honoring of dignity. She shares a fresh set of strategies for becoming aware of the role of dignity, and for putting dignity into practice in all of our interactions with other people.
