Who are Christian nationalists and what do they believe? Why is this movement so dangerous? How do people we think of as “good people” get drawn in to the irrational beliefs held by this movement, including outright lies and conspiracy theories? What are the psychological motivations that draw people into this movement? And what are some of the ways our clinical training can help us to talk across a widening political and religious divide.

Learning Objectives: After attending this presentation, participants will be able to
– Identify psychological motivations for people to adopt a Christian nationalist belief system.
– Delineate a psychodynamic understanding of the group’s power to blur critical thinking in favor of collective paranoia.
– Describe clinical skills that can be utilized to “talk across the divide” with white nationalists, if and when possible.
