TEDxMIA - Dr. Isaac Prilleltensky - Community Well Being: Socialize or Social-Lies

For the last century we have been told four lies about how to promote community well-being: that the medical system will promote health, that experts know best, that we must focus on pathology instead of people's strengths, and that treating individuals one at a time will improve society. Dr. Prilleltensky's talk proposes four remedies to these sins: Strengths, Prevention, Empowerment, and Community Change.

I saw Isaac at UCL a few years ago - and he inspired me so much I decided to try and become a Community Psychologist! His point of just trying to work with individuals in the context of such social inequality really struck me. Thanks so much for posting this Glenn!
