Human Dignity & Humiliations Studies Network
Research & Action Report Spring/Summer 2006
Linda Hartling served as co-convener and facilitator of the 7th Annual Meeting of the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies (Human DHS) Network held in September at the University for Peace in Costa Rica. Hartling welcomed participants and introduced the “Appreciative Frame,” a model of engagement that focuses on: practicing relational-cultural awareness; listening others into voice; waging good conflict; creating better connection through reflection; and employing humor while working. She also joined Evelin Lindner, founding manager of Human HDS, for which Hartling is a member of the board of directors, in Zurich, Switzerland in October, as she accepted the Swiss Professional Association’s 2006 Award for Applied Psychology on behalf of the network. The network is a multi-disciplinary, international organization dedicated to promoting peace and dignity by ending cycles of humiliation.
