  • Introduction to Positive Psychology

    Instructor(s):
    Gary Buck, PhD | David Lukoff, Ph.D. |
    Course description: The world’s great spiritual traditions have long touted the importance of human virtues. The approach of Positive Psychology is to nurture and develop innate human virtues, such as gratitude, forgiveness, and mindfulness, that contribute to human happiness and fulfillment. With its emphasis on promoting mental health rather than seeking to cure or ameliorate disease and its symptoms, Positive Psychology complements mainstream medicine and psychotherapy. Central to the work of Positive Psychology is that claims about positive human capacities be backed with strong quantitative research results. This course reviews the history, basic tenets, and research support for Positive Psychology.
