#048 – Heal Your Wounds | Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli

These days, hatred and conflict seem to be everywhere, from conversations around our dinner tables to interactions with total strangers. How can we come together to replace prejudice and generalization with understanding and unity?

Clinical psychologist and author Dr. Arthur P. Ciaramicoli believes the answer lies in empathy and understanding. Before we can address conflict on a global scale, however, we must first understand where our own prejudices and ideas stem from.

In this episode, Suzanne and Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli discuss how we can heal our wounds and foster understanding. Dr. Ciaramicoli talks about highlights from his most recent book, America Reunited, why empathy is so important, how to find common ground with others, and much more.
