Study Session: Infusing Positive Psychology in the Workplace

By

Dr. Martin Seligman, the father of positive psychology introduced the idea that societies should focus on understanding what makes people more productive and fulfilled instead of simply focusing on eliminating human suffering. The study of positive psychology is based on PERMA: Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and purpose, and Accomplishments. During this Study Session we will dig deep into the effects of positive psychology and what Dr. Seligman calls “Flourishing.” We will discuss ways that we can improve our workplace and create internal programs that can increase well-being & productivity!
