Title: Virtuous Violence: Hurting and killing to create, sustain, end, and honor social relationships. Abstract: Violence is often considered the antithesis of sociality — people think that violence is the expression of our animal nature, breaking though when learned cultural norms collapse. Violence is also considered to be the essence of evil: it is the prototype of immorality. But an examination of violent acts and practices across cultures and throughout history shows just the opposite. When people hurt or kill someone, they usually do so because they feel they ought to do so: they feel that it is morally right or even obligatory to do the violence. Moreover, the motives for violence generally grow out of a relationship between the perpetrator and the victim, or their relationships with third parties. The perpetrator is violent to make the relationship right — to make the relationship what it ought to be according to his or her cultural implementations of universal relational moral principles. That is, most violence is morally motivated. Rather than reflecting the breakdown of morality, violence is the performance of moral rights and obligations. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Colloquia, Open to the Public, Dept: CLPS, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Faculty, Staff, Postdocs, Departments

Warrier, MD, FACP Assistant Professor of Medicine Course Leader, Doctoring Year 1 | Warren Alpert Medical School Program Description: Medical faculty members are asked to provide specific, timely, and professional feedback to their learners. However, few receive training about how to process and respond to feedback from learners. Despite little exposure to processing techniques, faculty are asked to respond to anonymous, time-shifted, and often challenging learner feedback. In this workshop, participants will learn about the culture of feedback in medical education and organizations, identify strategies for processing and responding to feedback, and apply these strategies to cases through discussion in small groups. This session will demonstrate the application of learning principles and will focus on the Core area of Evaluation and effective feedback. Learning Objectives: 1. Describe the current culture of feedback for faculty in medical education 2. Identify effective strategies for processing and responding to feedback 3. Apply strategies to sample cases in small groups Credit Designation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.

Geared towards those holding or working towards advanced degrees in all disciplines, the talk will cover different interview formats including phone, skype, in person one-on-one and panel settings. Propel will provide insight on what hiring managers look for when conducting interviews as well as typical interview questions with examples of responses. Propel will discuss how to prepare for skills based questions (i.e. tell me more about your specific technical experience) as well as “soft skills” questions (i.e. tell me how you work in a team, or how you show initiative). Propel will provide insight on why companies use behavioral interviewing and the important role of culture fit and personality fit in an interview. Propel will also provide advice on research that a candidate can do to make sure they have relevant background information on the company and interviewers and advice on what questions to ask during an interview. Following the talk, time will be allocated for Q&A to address additional topics. Refreshments will be served.

Abstract: How do humans make choices despite competing pressures of fairness, harm, self-interest, and concern for others? Combining behavioral and neuroscientific methods, my research explores the social, emotional and cognitive factors that shape and ultimately guide these complex moral choices. The human moral calculus involves a balance of motivated actions (Should I help others at a cost to my self?) and responses to immoral behavior (How do I respond to unfair treatment?). Across several studies, I illustrate how motivations to be altruistic and fair are highly sensitive to the context in which the dilemma is framed. Moreover, I show that moral behavior is dependent on factors relating to emotional engagement—including empathy and distress—and that these affective mechanisms rely on distinct neural circuits. Taken together, my research demonstrates that while moral behavior is flexibly deployed, there are key factors that can systematically bias these social choices. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Colloquia, Open to the Public, Dept: CLPS, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Faculty, Staff, Postdocs, Departments

    March 14, 2015 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM Conference Location Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University 222 Richmond Street | Providence, RI 02912 Program Description There is increasing evidence for the role of infectious disease as a trigger for illness such as helicobacter pylori and peptic ulcer disease. Since the late 1980’s, researchers have identified infectious triggers they believe lead to rapid onset cases of OCD and tic disorders—now a widely accepted consensus. Through his Director’s Post in August 2010, the Director of the National Institutes of Mental Health, Thomas Insel, MD supported these concepts in “Microbes and Mental Illness” (http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/director/index-ocd.shtml). He also pointed to history and added research in a 2012 post “From Paresis to PANDAS and PANS”. These neuropsychiatric syndromes have been widely under-recognized. The role of this conference is to increase provider awareness, understanding and recognition of appropriate cases. Target Audience Physicians, physician assistants, psychologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and researchers specializing in pediatrics, psychiatry, immunology, infectious diseases, neurobiology, neurology, and family medicine. Educational Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: 1.

    March 16, 2015 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM Rhode Island Thoracic Society Dinner and Lecture "The Management of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis/Usual Interstitial Pneumonia: Where Are We Today?" Program Description Historically, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis has been a challenging disorder to diagnose accurately and there have been no proven effective therapies for this disease, which has a very high mortality rate. Recent guidelines have standardized the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. In the last year, phase 3 studies of new medications for treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis have been published, leading to the approval of two medications for treatment in the past few months. Understanding the data behind these new treatments, including outcomes and adverse effects, is critical to the effective application of these new therapies in the real world setting. Target Audience Primary Care Physicians, Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, Medical Students, Residents and Fellows Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this activity,participants should be able to: • Understand the clinical course of IPF/UIP • Describe the pathway to progress in the treatment of IPF/UIP • Describe the role of pirfenidone and nentedanib in patients with IPF. • Recognize the key most common adverse events associated with pirfenidone and nentedanib treatment • Outline the current treatment approach to patients with IPF Registration Fee (includes dinner) $40.00 Physicians $30.00 Other Healthcare Professionals No Charge Trainees Register Online: https://apps.biomed.brown.edu/cme_registration/ CME Accreditation This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the Rhode Island Thoracic Society.
