Adversarial Collaboration

It takes a lot of confidence and humility to admit when we’re wrong, and that is especially true when it comes to science. So in the edition of  Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman, Dr. Bob Duke, and  Rebecca McInroy are taking a moment to highlight one “Adversarial Collaboration” that could change the way we look at the relationship between money and happiness.

Learning Conflict Resolution

As humans, we don’t come ready to interact with the world when we are born. We have to learn a language, we have to learn how to roll over, to walk, to hold things, we have to learn all kinds of things. One thing that psychologists have been asking for a long time is how this learning happens.

The work of one researcher, the late Albert Bandura, who passed July 26, 2021, was integral in understanding the role observation plays in this learning process.  

In this edition of Two Guys on Your Head, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke remember the work of Bandura and discuss what his findings tell us about how children learn conflict resolution.
