EP13 Invited Address 19 - Self, Compassion, and Peace of Mind: The Implications of Evolution Science - Steven Hayes, PhD
Moderator: Betty Alice Erickson, MS
In this talk Dr. Hayes argues that human beings evolved for compassion and cooperation, based in part on the impact of eusociality on human language. This view has extraordinary implications for how we can achieve peace of mind, placing perspective taking and compassion at the center of psychotherapy itself. Such a view has the exciting possibility of bringing together different traditions in psychotherapy that often consider themselves rivals.
Explain the implications of multilevel selection for human cooperation.
Describe the link between human cooperation and human cognition.

Recently, we have made changes to the way audio files are handled through our store. Previously, audio sales would provide a downloadable MP3. This feature is being phased out and replaced with an audio streaming option. This means you won't have to download or keep track of your MP3 files. You can now stream them directly through a web browser (or the CE21 Mobile app). Audio streaming products can be saved in the CE21 mobile app for offline playback.
