I think that Psychology used to involve peaceful resolutions and problem solving through researched and applied learning projects are great for long-term applications in thoughtful discourse on how persons outside of diplomatic relations can consider not only opinion but also personality perspectives on how to negotiate successful relationships. That I think there is no presumption that a person or group of persons are only required to do this in the instance of an emergency, crime resolution or as political salve prompted a second look at the many ways the American Psychological Association might consider looking at a "political" tag on a very person driven approach to examining relationships. I am familiar with Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution theories, Psychology as a discipline is very different in it's theoretical approach. However, it is great that there are thoughtful people who consider relationship examination. I did read that one university examines the concept of Peace Psychology in the Social Psychology area discipline in it's department study.
