Culture of Empathy Builder:  Paul Slovic

 

Paul Slovic and Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy

Paul Slovic is a professor of psychology at the University of Oregon and the president of Decision Research....  Dr. Slovic studies judgment and decision processes with an emphasis on decision making under conditions of risk.

His work examines fundamental issues such as the influence of affect on judgments and decisions. He also studies the factors that underlie perceptions of risk and attempts to assess the importance of these perceptions for the management of risk in society. His most recent research examines psychological factors contributing to apathy toward genocide.  He is author of The Feeling of Risk: New Perspectives on Risk Perception.
