How do we nurture well-being in ourselves, and those we serve? How do we nurture the meaning that brought us to this work, and the positive emotions that give us energy to show up every day?
This eCourse examines possibilities, based on scientific findings, for tilting life paths toward meaning and connection, and upward spirals of hope and well-being. It is based on the book, Positivity, by Barbara L. Fredrickson and introduces the science of wellbeing and applications that lead to greater satisfaction and meaning in life. Fredrickson’s research focuses on how positive emotions broaden minds and build resources in a manner that leads toward flourishing.
Upon completion of this interactive and experiential, 8-week eCourse, participants will be able to:
- Explain the broaden and build theory of positive emotions.
- Explain the positivity ratio and its relation to well-being.
- Identify two methods, and use one, to assess one’s positivity ratio.
- Identify research-based activities to decrease negativity and increase positivity with oneself and others.
Positivity is available in paperback and as a Kindle ebook. Please note: You do not need to own a Kindle to purchase the ebook; you can download Kindle software to your computer at no cost.
