 Conflict is everywhere. This five-week practice lab teaches a method of conflict resolution applied to public policy and politics, social justice movements, and personal life. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) provides a simple technique for conflict resolution. The heart of NVC is empathy—connecting with others. We will learn how to observe without judging, to note feelings and needs at play in a conflict, and to make effective requests. The public policy issues we discuss this semester will come from the health policy sphere. Leading health policy professionals from Washington D.C. will join us to apply NVC to dialogues on issues such as Covid vaccine mandates, health equity, and abortion. No previous experience in conflict resolution is necessary.

 The Spring should bring some very interesting opportunities to flex your advocacy muscles! Looking forward to an exciting time! Utilizing the instructor’s current clients, students in this clinic will have the opportunity to work on current social policy priorities of both this Congress and Administration. For this particular clinic, the focus of our work will be in the area of health care policy and child welfare policy and how current pieces of federal legislation will have on the well-being of populations who are served by these policy constructs. Over the 10-week clinic, students will be integrated into real-time research and analysis of current relevant policies and become familiar with advocacy activities related and to any Congressional reform efforts that are underway. Students will be producing work product to support particular advocacy events including research documents, informative one-pagers for congressional staff, and any other tools required for effective advocacy. To every extent possible, students will have the opportunity watch hearings/debates and other related congressional events, as well as propose policy solutions directly to the participating

 Our Spring 2021 partner is the UVA Legal Data Lab who is working to launch a database of Virginia court records. We will undertake some initial analysis of subsets of this data to create a series of policy-oriented data stories to accompany the database platform. These will serve as examples of the types of research the court data enables, provide models of reproducible analysis, and be an educational resource for others wishing to use the data platform for analysis and advocacy. We are particularly interested in developing analyses that will help justice-oriented organizations and advocates understand how his data can be used to understand racial and other disparities in the criminal and civil judicial systems.

20987 001Lecture (3 Units)Closed12 / 12 (14 / 20)Brooke LehmannTuTh 3:30pm - 4:45pmThe Rotunda Room 150
 In this course, students will explore US mental health policy and critically analyze whether or not those policies are effectively addressing our Nation’s behavioral health needs. Beginning with the very first efforts to legislate in this policy area, continuing into current times, students will explore how the US Federal government has and does perceive mental illness, what impact science has had on various policy initiatives and why we still remain in a state of crisis. Topics to be explored will be but are not limited to; institutionalization versus community-based services, the impact of adverse childhood experiences, PTSD and the military, brain science and its impact on policy and practice, mechanisms of financing mental health services, our current opioid crisis, and of course COVID. We will hear from congressional staff and other national experts in the area as well as incorporate, when possible, congressional hearings and other relevant activities. Major mental health legislation is already being introduced for the Spring so it should be a very dynamic and exciting time!
 LPPS 4260Politics of Development
20277 001SEM (3 Units)Open12 / 25Peter JohannessenMoWe 2:00pm - 3:15pmMonroe Hall 122
 What explains patterns of human development across time and space? To what extent does politics explain that variation? And how can we make politics work for development, rather than against it? This course explores these questions. To begin, we consider different definitions of development. Then, we evaluate political explanations for differences in development across the world. To conclude, we explore several promising policy interventions to solve governance problem - and you propose your own intervention for a country of your choosing.
