Bringing Humanity to Politics



How does knowledge of psychology and human behaviour allow you, or your organization, to be more effective at policy-making, mediation and political analysis?

The Conciliators Guild organizes regular workshops and training based in the core ideas of our initiative. We use a practical, case-study approach, to investigate how the latest knowledge of our basic human motivations apply to political challenges around the world.

Courses have been held in London and Helsinki. More are planned for 2018 and beyond. You can check this page periodically for updates. If you are an organization interested in hosting a workshop for your members, contact us at the email or number below.



Fear and Political Chaos: How to bring clarity to societal upheaval through the lens of innate human needs -  £129.00

The world is becoming an increasingly unstable and dangerous place. More than ever before, anyone trying to tackle society's problems or help the refugees and traumatised victims of corruption and war, needs a greater understanding of the fundamental unit of society – the human being.


This unique online course, run in association with Human Givens College and filmed at our full-day workshop at Broadway House in London, focuses on how to improve politics by involving a greater understanding of psychology in domestic and international relations.

You will gain an increased awareness of what war and terrorism reveal about the human psyche and an improved ability to see through political and cultural assumptions, by recognising the underlying emotional dynamics driving behaviour.

You will also discover the most accurate explanations available about the root causes of extremism in politics, radicalization, the refugee crisis and the growth of authoritarianism, due to the ease with which mass hypnosis is used throughout the world today.

The Middle East serves as the primary case study – but the implications of the material covered are universal and provide powerful new directions for a way out of the chaos we currently find ourselves in.

The course facilitators are John Bell and Ivan Tyrrell.
