CAA North Texas – Evening with Harvard Professor Daniel Shapiro
May 22, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Location: Dallas, TX
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 22nd when the Ivy League community comes together to hear from Harvard Professor Daniel Shapiro.
A world-renowned expert on the psychology of conflict resolution, Dr. Shapiro is the founder and director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program, is an associate professor in psychology at Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital, an affiliate faculty at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, and regularly advises everyone from hostage negotiators to families in crisis, disputing CEOs to clashing heads of state.
Dr. Shapiro’s pioneering research focuses on how to address the emotional and identity-based dimensions of negotiation and conflict resolution. He is author of Negotiating the Nonnegotiable and coauthor with Roger Fisher of Beyond Reason: Using Emotions as You Negotiate, and has published extensively in research literature, developing innovative psychological models to conceptualize the affective and relational factors driving conflict and its resolution.
Dr. Shapiro specializes in practice-based research-building theory and testing it in real-world contexts. He has launched successful conflict resolution initiatives in the Middle East, Europe, and East Asia, and for three years chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Conflict Resolution. Just back from the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, Dr. Shapiro is a highly in-demand speaker, both at Harvard University and internationally through the Washington Speakers Bureau.
The evening reception and lecture will be held at the elegant Belo Mansion. Cocktail reception begins at 6:00 pm, cash bar available.
