Professor Daniel Shapiro, Associate Director of the Harvard Mediation Project, has been selected as one of four 2011 Burke Global Health Fellows by the Harvard Global Health Institute. During his fellowship, Professor Shapiro will develop materials for a new Harvard course designed to train leaders on how to mediate conflicts with a strong emotional or identity-based component. This course will focus on helping leaders develop the skills needed to reduce violent conflict, a major global health issue.
Dan Shapiro is the Assistant Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and McLean Hospital. He is the co-author, with Roger Fisher, of Beyond Reason: Using Emotions as You Negotiate.
