What are the causes of fundamentalism and militant behavior? Can we clearly understand or define terrorism? This presentation will examine the root causes of radicalism and religious militancy and will explore how Milton Erickson would have dealt with these emerging and recent phenomena. We will attempt to address these sensitive, timely matters through open discussion among participants and analyze the psychosocial nature of terrorism and its impact on people.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the root causes of fundamentalism, radicalism and terrorism.
  2. To identify Ericksonian approaches for dealing with these issues.
