The Role of Language in Peace Building
- Language is a potent force for positive change – from divisive authoritarian, bullying language to a cohesive, whole brain positive authority language.
- Our language to ourselves is as important as our language to others.
- If we judge, bully or attack ourselves with our internal dialogue we are more likely to judge, bully or attack others around us, or to attract attack.
- As we learn to change our language and the feelings that go with it, from ‘authoritarian’ stress based language to whole brain positive authority language, we help to free ourselves, families and students from cycles of violence.
