Have you ever wondered how to avoid getting into an argument?

Have you ever faced a bully? Or experienced racism? Or war?

This new series from the studios of 4EBfm in Brisbane, with funding from the Community Broadcasting Foundation, tackles the issues of conflict and peace through the research of peace psychologists.
We talk to counsellors, researchers, peace advocates and citizens about their experiences in this ten-part radio series that covers the breadth of the field from couples conflict, through group conflicts including racism, to national and global conflicts like war. We conclude the series with a vision of a peaceful world through the eyes of psychologists and peace advocates.
The soundtrack of this entertaining and informative series includes a selection of alternative Australian and overseas music.  The series is supported by a facebook page where listeners can find more information on the topics we cover and hear complete interviews.
The series is sponsored by Psychologists for Peace, an interest group of the Australian Psychological Society, 4EBfm, 4ZZZfm and the Community Radio Network.
10 episodes, 27:50 mins each.   Series Producers: Kim Stewart, Linda Rose and Nathan Renault.

Broadcast on the Community Radio Network in August 2013.  Available for free download to any and all community radio stations.

The series will be available to online listeners via the CBAA podcast site http://www.cpod.org.au/ in August.
