Peace Psychology, peacekeeping, Peace building


Peace psychology seeks to develop theories and practices aimed at the prevention and mitigation of direct and structural violence. Framed positively, peace psychology promotes the nonviolent management of conflict and the pursuit of social justice, what we refer to as peacemaking and peace building, respectively. I suggest that peace can be facilitated the different points of intervention. And I discuss competencies, structural and direct violence, peacekeeping and peacemaking perceptual constructs. Peace of mind is often associated with yogis, hermits or monks, sitting alone in a far-off place, in an ashram, cave or monastery, praying or meditating all day long. The truth is that peace of mind can be attained and enjoyed right here and now, even while leading a normal, ordinary life, with a job and family. Peace of mind sharpens the five senses, calms down the mind and the emotions, and enables you to focus more easily on mental and physical activities. “The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.
