PSY 3350 - Positive Psychology


(3) Credit Hours

This course is an evidence-based approach to the positive possibilities in our adult lives. Key words for the course are well-being, meaningfulness, interest, efficacy, positive regard, optimism, flow, love and happiness. The nature, process, effects and sustainability of each of these nine concepts will be studied and applied. Our culture’s regard for these phenomena is mixed; there is a good deal of implicit suspicion of things positive, and a strong belief in the reality and predominance of things negative. This course challenges this self-fulfilling cultural presence. The course process includes topical power-points, key word specialist guest speakers, large and small group discussion and in-class activities.  Every semester.  Prerequisites: 6 hours of psychology or department head approval.
