A healthy democracy requires that citizens conduct themselves in an ethical and respectful manner toward all other citizens. There are guidelines for this conduct dating at least as far back as The Ten Commandments; including but not limited to Plato’s Republic, George Washington’s Rules of Civility, The Little Golden Books, and our Kindergarten teachers. But we still have not gotten it right. In fact, studies show our culture’s lack of Civility to be a major problem that is worsening right before our very eyes.


Please join us for a presentation and discussion on the Who, What, Why, How, and When of Civility for these times by Madelaine Claire Weiss, LICSW, MBA. Madelaine is a trained conflict mediator, with both clinical and organizational behavior education and expertise. In addition to her personal and professional effectiveness work with individual clients, she is a speaker and trainer on a variety of topics in and around the D.C. area. She is a chapter co-author in the Handbook of Stressful Transitions Across the Lifespan and has written for the Across-Species Comparisons and Psychopathology Newsletter and the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation Quarterly. She is currently working on a paper and book with co-authors at the Harvard Program on Negotiation entitled Get a Grip: Negotiating Great Narratives to Succeed in…Work, Play, Love, and Life.
