Our work with Dr. Forni from Johns Hopkins University began in 2004 after reading his book Choosing Civility.  He came to work with students and two DVDs titled Civility: Commitment to Kindness were made to continue the work of teaching the importance of civility and kindness.  One is for professionals and the other for students/general audience.  This important area of work continues, having made a third DVD and encouraging schools in this area.  Being civil and humane is not just psychologically important, but affects our health long term.  Helping people to understand the importance of being civil helps to decrease bullying and dehumanizing behavior.


Additional Books by Dr. Forni:

Choosing Civility: The Twenty-five Rules of Considerate Conduct

The Civility Solution: What to Do When People Are Rude
The Thinking Life: How to Thrive in the Age of Distraction
