Dr. Halpern is a former president of the American Psychological Association and current professor of psychology at Claremont McKenna College. She draws from her extensive background researching critical thinking and applies it to a domain that sorely needs it -- politics. About TED: In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
