Magaziner will discuss how, based on his national and global experiences, he views the importance of America's role, at this time in history, in achieving peaceful and equitable solutions to local, regional and world-wide problems. His talk, titled "Our Common Humanity," will have implications for mental health professionals, community workers and the lay public as to how they might contribute to changing society in a constructive direction. (The William J. Clinton Foundation is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.)

"Our survival depends on a significant portion of the human race accomplishing a change in worldview, from one of patriotic and tribal loyalties to loyalty to life itself," says Green," who will present "Reconciliation and forgiveness in divided societies: A psychologist's reflections from the field."

Green who established the Karuna Center in the mid-90s to address the growing global challenges of ethnic, religious and political conflict in the world, is also a professor at the School of International Training Graduate Institute in Brattleboro VT, where she founded and directs CONTACT, (Conflict Transformation Across Cultures), an annual Summer Training Program for international peacebuilders.

In her speech, Green will describe the work she does with nations (at their invitation) to encourage the practice of forgiveness to bring people and societies together. One example
