2.   The ability to remain calm themselves,

3.   The ability to calm others down so that 

4.   Workable solutions are discovered. 

But what if we are talking about dealing with the situation between Israelis and Palestinians? 

Or Republicans and Democrats (lately)? 

Or your assh*le narcissistic boss?  

Or, what if we are talking about dealing with murderers? 

Well, hold onto your hats, true believers, because this episode has it all – THE way to de-escalate anger in others AS PROVEN by 12 years of work done in maximum security prisons with murderers and, of course, neuroscience.
