Why register for this webinar?

The concept of evil is ancient, appearing across multiple cultures, religions and philosophies all over the world. When Self-Reg has a central belief that there is “no such thing as a bad kid” how does a Self-Regger contend with the concept of “Evil” or behaviours that would be considered evil?

Join Dr. Shanker as he unpacks the history of the concept of evil and blends this seamlessly with the latest understanding of human behaviour, the neuroaxis of the brain and will show us how an understanding of our behavioural circuits will allow us to reframe and understand evil.

This webinar will include:
  • An overview of the origins of the concept of evil
  • An explanation and reframe of evil behaviour through the lens of the neuroaxis
  • An in-depth discussion on the RAGE and SEEKING circuits in relation to “evil behaviour”
  • Tackling rationality and confabulation and a reframing of responsibility.
  • Show how “Evil” is the absence of choice, doubt and empathy
