Event Summary

Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness

Historically, the field of psychology has placed a lot of attention on what’s wrong with people and what we can do to treat disorders of the mind. More recently, however, the field has broadened its scope to give more attention to the positive side of human nature and the most effective ways to pursue the good life. This presentation will discuss the scientific study of happiness and strategies for life satisfaction based on research in Positive Psychology.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Dispel myths about the nature of happiness to clarify how it is conceptualized from a psychological perspective.
  2. Discuss the benefits of positive emotion and their utility in enhancing other aspects of life.
  3. Outline the behaviors and mindsets that most strongly predict happiness.
  4. Identify empirically-based strategies that can be incorporated into one’s life to improve psychological well-being.
