Stanford University psychology professor Geoffrey L. Cohen has used science to show that when people don’t have a sense of belonging, negative consequences often follow: diminished performance at school and work, poorer health, increased levels of hostility, and more divisive politics. This book offers concrete steps that we can all take to foster belonging.Cohen is known for major studies revealing practical actions (“wise interventions”) that creatively reduce conflict in all areas of life. Something as simple as affirming your core values before a test can markedly increase your score. Helping others in even small matters can improve health and happiness. Signaling respect and common cause by making subtle adjustments in the language we use can improve politics and policing. Working for a shared goal can moderate the views of the most bitter enemies.With Cohen’s insights, we can all learn “situation-crafting” to reverse the myriad ways in which people are excluded because of race, class, gender, and other differences. This essential book empowers educators, parents, managers, administrators, caregivers, and everyone who wants those around them to thrive.
