PSYC 217 Positive Psychology


Historically, and understandably, psychology focuses on decreasing maladaptive emotions and behaviors. This focus will not and should not be abandoned. However after WWII a need emerged to study how human beings prosper in the face of adversity. Consequently, the area of Positive Psychology emerged to identify and enhance the human strengths and virtues that make life worth living and allow individuals and communities to thrive. This research-based course examines the different assumptions and questions resulting from this change in perspective.
