Online Videos: Applying the Science of Positive Psychology to Improve Society
IMPORTANT: Please read.
Positive Psychology emerged at the beginning of the new millennium as a movement within psychology aimed at enhancing human strengths and optimal human functioning. This emerging area of scholarship, scientific research, and application has inspired leading scholars and practitioners from across the globe to rethink the fundamental nature of how we live, work, and educate; of our health and well-being; of how to design and lead positive institutions; and how to develop positive public policies. The ideas contained in the initial work in positive psychology have spread far and wide across the disciplines to form a broader movement, sometimes referred to as the positive social and human sciences.
On January 24, 2009, Claremont Graduate University hosted a day-long event to celebrate the emerging positive social and human sciences, and to push their boundaries. Leaders and leading scholars from across the positive science landscape gathered in Claremont to discuss Applying the Science of Positive Psychology to Improve Society with a sold-out crowd in the packed Garrison Theater on campus.
Over 750 participants watched the event live. The standing-room-only crowd (who came from Australia, Ireland, China, Jamaica, New Zealand, and 8 of the United States) included university presidents, deans, and professors; researchers, clinical psychologists, and private consultants in applied psychology; the heads of major foundations; graduate and undergraduate students; and many enthusiasts from the private sector.
An additional audience across the globe participated online via a live webcast, some even staying up all night in Australia, Finland, Hungary, Scotland, and Estonia to watch, and others scattered across 13 of the United States.
