Positive psychology emerged a decade ago as an organized effort to use the tools of psychological science and use them to describe and explain human flourishing – happiness, creativity, flow, resilience, and other character strengths largely ignored by psychology’s first century of research. On Friday, August 20, 2010, Claremont Graduate University is offering a workshop (also available as a live webcast) for those interested in positive psychology, but perhaps unfamiliar with what has been done in the amazing first ten years of research. This one-day event will serve as an introduction to the scientific research in this rapidly growing area. It will provide a brief history of the field and acquaint participants with major areas of research. Topics will include positive experience, positive lives, and positive institutions, with special attention to work on flow by the field’s co-founder, Claremont professor Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
