On behalf of Orchard Cove, and by way of our residents’ input, it is my
pleasure to share the overwhelming success of your lecture and subject
matter, "Creating a More Peaceful Society by Confronting the Origins of
You couldn’t have presented a more thought provoking lecture. After
more than a full week since your lecture, our residents continue to
talk about the facts that you presented, which is the strongest
statement to your effectiveness with your audience.
— Diane E. Hoffmann, Director of Member Services
It was one of the most interesting lectures I have attended. Dr.
Goldman was very well organized and thought-provoking. I would
recommend this presentation as widely as possible.
— Arthur Berney, retired professor
Dr. Goldman's presentation is full of insightful and significant ideas.
What particularly surprised me was how much common sense his arguments
contained, and that these ideas have been downplayed or ignored by our
culture for decades. I think that anyone trying to address the issue
of, for instance, bullying, which is very prevalent in the news these
days, should consider this presentation when working with other
professionals and educators in order to tackle the problem.
— Rick Rosenblatt, software developer
Your lecture got our residents thinking and talking about the topic of
violence in our society. When I came in the next day there was a lot of
discussion among the residents.
— Jody Briggs, activities director
This presentation has tremendous importance for the well-being of our society and the world.
— Anne Bassinor
Thorough, well-researched, and convincing. Dr. Goldman effectively
explains how to help reduce our high rates of violence. I highly
recommend this presentation!
— Gabriell Paye, retired teacher
As a homicide survivor, I had a keen and personal interest in Dr.
Goldman's topic. He clearly presented much relevant and pointed data
which supported valid reasons why the USA is a violent country.
Since my sister's murder in 1990, I have wanted to know what can I do to
make this country safer. Dr Goldman's presentation gave me some ideas and
most importantly added solace to my soul. Well done!!
— Lynn Thomas, financial consultant
Very well-done, easy to follow, concise, and clear! Dr. Goldman should be on Dr. Phil!
— Nancy Wainer, midwife, author, and lecturer
Great progression from clearly enumerated and explained premises to
quite logical and plausible conclusions. I appreciated the way this
presentation pointed out certain choices our culture has made about
where it places its attention and values.
— Karl Heinemann, software developer
I liked everything about this presentation. Thanks for the education.
— Steve Butocu, engineer
This lecture answers questions that I have been thinking about for a
long time. Dr. Goldman has done a superior job of pointing out how we
perpetuate violence and what we can do about it. I appreciate his
insight and caring.

Clear, comprehensive, and science-based. Interesting for any age.
— Sarah Zitter, family therapist
Dr. Goldman’s recommendations concerning what does work to prevent
violence are extremely convincing. This is a wise, carefully composed,
and enormously instructive program.

presentation pulled together results from numerous research studies to
form an integrated picture of the origins of violence. I found it
concise, well-illustrated, and easy to comprehend. Moreover, I felt
quite moved by the experience. I'd like to see this on Good Morning

Very good, clear presentation. It brings up important issues.
