The Institute of Conflict Analysis and the Museum of Creative Process are partner not-for-profit research and training centers devoted to the scientific study of the creative process as a conflict resolution mechanism. The original concept is presented in Dr Albert Levis in his textbook, Conflict Analysis, the Formal Theory of Behavior.
The five permanent art exhibits of the Museum of the Creative Process illustrate and demonstrate the structure and function of this conflict resolution mechanism. Recognizing creativity as a scientific moral order phenomenon represents a major conceptual breakthrough with many applications in revamping the humanities into the Moral Science.
The Moral Science integrates psychology, morality, and the rigorous sciences. It ushers in a clear conceptualization of behavior, new wellness diagnostic categories, assessment methods, and clarity of values. This scientific and moral order phenomenon is readily identified by sampling the creative process, a fact which allows us to use creativity for self-discovery and self help in a program identified as Creativity and Power Management.
At the institute we are preoccupied with three major innovations: First: Promoting psychology as a pure science: The Art exhibits of the Museum of the Creative Process help to popularize the concept of the unconscious as a measurable Conflict Resolution Process. Second: Understanding religions as pioneers of the Moral Science as they represent a progression of discoveries of the Conflict Resolution Process leading gradually to fairness in norms and abstraction in the conceptualization of the divine. The Moral Science completes the search for fairness and for abstraction on the nature of the divine equated with the unconscious Conflict Resolution Process. Third: Introducing a concise and comprehensive program of moral and emotional education in the classroom but also into psychotherapy.
These three projects are being worked on through publications, guided tours of the exhibits, guest art exhibits, training of professionals, all of which will be taking place this summer. We are looking for interns to help us with the executing the tasks, first by attending the training and then by assuming roles in the delivery of services; we need tour guides, assistant trainers, networking consultants and media publicists. The Institute and Museum are part of a larger project including the Wilburton Inn, a New England Bed and Breakfast, the Earth Sky Time Community Farm, all located in Manchester, Vermont and operated by the Levis family.
