Pathfinders introduces you to a segment hosted by Victor La Cerva, MD. who, as a healthcare professional, lecturer and author, has actively worked in the field of violence prevention for over fifteen years. His book, Pathways to Peace, is the basis for this forum. Pathways is a passionate, in-depth and informative research guide to peacemaking for you: parents, students, teachers, clergy, business leaders and policymakers.

"An essential tool kit for all who want to do something to reduce violence and create a kinder world" - Sam Keen

Our goal in this segment is to explore the essence of peacemaking and to glean timely insights and gain constructive resources for decreasing violence in our homes, businesses, schools, and communities in the U.S. and beyond. The information presented is applicable everywhere. One of the gifts, and clarity, of Victor's work is that it gives us an opportunity to fully understand, and laser-focus, on the hidden violence within ourselves and how to address it in our search for a peaceful world society.

The topics on our agenda include: Gender Roles in Violence, Enlightening the Media," Just Say No" Doesn't Work, and Teach Men to Talk

Remember that violence is a relationship disorder; it is communications failure. Those who focus time and energy into overcoming this disorder are forming more effective styles of communication as well as laying a foundation for a promising, peaceful and radiant future.

Waking up this morning, I smile, twenty four new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion          —Thich Nhat Hanh
