Blind Trust: Leaders & Followers in Times of Crisis

Blind Trust FINAL Play Button

Blind Trust: Leaders & Followers in Times of Crisis celebrates the life and work of psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Vamik Volkan, a five-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee and emeritus professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia, who has spent over four decades bringing enemy groups together in areas of conflict all over the world. This look into his pioneering fieldwork and peace-building missions in Europe, the Middle East, and the US sheds light on how large-group identity and shared trauma can both unite us and divide us for generations.
