is always experimenting with new methodologies to help Hungarians build resilience and hopefulness in a time when sometimes it feels racism and a difficult economy are hard to overcome. We are working now with the Hungarian Heroes Square project, which bases its trainings on the work of social psychologist Philip Zimbardo. We also are preparing a conference that will feature the empathy work of MIT Prof. Emil BruneauAn article about Bruneau’s work in Nyiregyhaza appeared in the New York Times.

We are excited to be planning two Budapest conferences associated with these initiatives, one in October 2015 and the other in December. If you are interested in participating, please contact Ellen Hume at
