This Month in Western City Magazine

March 16, 2012
Don't miss these articles in this month's Western City magazine.
  • "The Power of Groupthink: The New Denial" - Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon in which the group members form individual opinions that match the group consensus rather than critically evaluating information. Groupthink seems to occur most often when a respected or persuasive leader is present, inspiring members to agree with his or her opinion. It also is a powerful force when it validates the preconceived opinions of the individual members. It can be spot on and right. It also can be dreadfully wrong.
  • "Hayward Uses Murals to Fight Blight" - Hayward's Mural Art Program offers an outstanding example of a local effort that has helped reduce crime, build public-private partnerships, enhance community pride and save taxpayers' money.
