Accentuate the Positive
A six-week journey into the science and benefits of Positive Psychology. Victor Frankl said, “The events of our lives are not as important as the meaning we give them.” Did you know there was a serious science demonstrating the benefits of positive feelings for your well-being, your health, and even your longevity? Positivity is not a “feel good” or smiley-face subject. Forget everything you know, and embrace the tremendous power of positivity - cultivated ways of expressing things like love and gratitude that are proven to broaden us and build us up. Cameron Powell said, “It’s the secret knowledge you keep buying books to discover.” We’ll discuss several books and articles that give us insight into the science of positivity. Our main text will be Positivity by Barbara Fredrickson, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who is a leading scholar within social psychology, affective science, and positive psychology. Mike Murray is a clinical psychologist and has taught many OLLI classes.
