Change the World U shares a compelling discovery of several essential behaviors and values needed to positively heal ourselves and the world.
It's less about us, and more about what we do. Sure, we probably should share a little about us. Cathy has a master's degree in elementary education and Chris has a law degree and is an attorney. We, both, have spent years together writing and drawing. To really understand us, it helps to explain what we write about.
Underlying our approach to creating positive and constructive change is an insight into how systems work in balance. The insight relates to behavior and it relates to functioning. It's an insight that guides much of the writing. Of course, there are many possible ways to present a breakthrough or insight. One possibility is with scholarly writing. And we have done that. Another is to write for the general public and we've done that. Beyond that, we believe it's important to reach children and so, we've written and illustrated many books for children, books that slowly, gradually introduce them to the insight.
Cathy is chief illustrator, co-program developer and co-author. She has a master’s degree in elementary education.
Chris is co-author and co-program developer. He has a law degree and background in business development.
What People Say
KENT, CREATING HARMONY
These are exactly the behaviors and values that I think we should be championing.
ALEX, HOPE FOR ALL
I finished it quickly–it’s outstanding. The values in this book are the values I want to teach my children, the prose is clear and direct, and the stories and examples are relevant and compelling. I might be a little biased, though–because I agree with basically everything in it! It really spoke to me.
JOHN, CREATING HARMONY
It’s insightful. I like the comparison to the body. It’s a powerful way to think about human behavior and it makes me think about what I can do better.
