Doug Noll has studied the science of how the brain processes conflict and has developed a program to help inmates learn the art of peaceful conflict resolution. He has discovered behavioral patterns that can help people build connections between the emotional and language processing centers of the brain. The techniques he uses to de-escalate tense situations behind bars, have been proven to be useful to resolve conflicts within the home, as well.
