Dr Miller’s Guest This Week
Spontaneous Violence and The Hero Project, A Conversation with Dr. Phil Zimbardo
Dr. Zimbardo became world famous as a result of his startling “Stanford Prison Experiment,” in which he randomly assigned psychologically normal college students to play the role of either prisoners or guards. Within a few days the two groups became more and more violent with each other – so much so that it became necessary to stop the experiment in 6 days instead of the planned 14 days.
In this intriguing conversation we review the startling details of this study. Zimbardo has conducted research for some years on deindividuation, vandalism and dehumanization that illustrated the ease with which ordinary people can be led to engage in anti-social acts by putting them in situations where they felt anonymous, or they could perceive of others in ways that made them less than human, as enemies or objects. In a world where polarization, conflict, and violence are becoming more dangerous it is crucial that we understand certain truths about ourselves.
We are incompletely evolved mammals, and along with our appendix and coccyx we have a vestigial bias towards negativity and violence. What to do? Dr. Zimbardo describes his “Heroic Imagination” Project, which has the goal of training people how to be “heros” around the globe.
The HIP education programs prepare heroes in training for everyday heroic action. This is achieved by educating participants directly about their own psychology and teaching how they can master social and situational forces as well as their automatic human tendencies in order to act in ways that are kind, prosocial, and even heroic.
You will also hear a portion of Dr. Miller’s program, Awakening The Leader Within.

His chief contributions have been his discoveries of how thoughts, emotions, and mental images can be guided to have a profound impact on illnesses, wellness, and performance. Dr. Miller discovered that the unconscious part of the mind behaves in a way analogous to a digital computer; it perceives, reasons, and reacts the way it was programmed –ways that often produce negative or inadequate results. He found in his medical practice is that self–induced states of deep relaxation, meditation, or hypnosis made it possible to alter this programming through the use of mental imagery.
This led to the development of his ‘Software for the Mind’ guided imagery recordings that soon became standard at such institutions as Mayo Clinic, Scripps, Mt. Sinai, and Kaiser, and are in widespread use by health and helping professionals and centers worldwide.
Miller’s first book, Selective Awareness – Introduction to the Medicine of Mind and Body (1973), introduced his concepts for the first time. In 1977, he cofounded and served as and medical director of the Cancer Support and Education Center in Menlo Park, the first such institution in the world. He has authored numerous other books, including the classic, Deep Healing – The Essence of Mind–Body Medicine, and his most recent, Our Culture on the Couch–7 Steps to Global Healing.
Through the years Dr. Miller has continued to develop his understanding of the healing process, and to serve as physician, psychotherapist, coach, speaker, and professional trainer, and to continue to develop tools and skills to empower people to heal and to do their very best. He has offices in Los Altos and in Nevada City, California, where he practices Mind-Body Medicine and Peak Performance Coaching. His future vision includes the development of a web-based global healing center on the Internet distributing low cost yet powerful self–healing tools. www.drmiller.com
