This is one of a series of films from Rebel Wisdom on the science and psychology of polarisation. We recommend starting with the introduction film here:

Peter Levine PhD is a transformational figure in the world of trauma and personal growth. His life’s work, Somatic Experiencing, has influenced every area of counselling and coaching. It is also hugely important to understanding polarisation and conflict.
