Event Details

The final lecture of Prof Martin Seligman, Adelaide Thinker in Residence, as part of his residency "Wellbeing and Resilience: Building a flourishing state."

Flourishing is the goal of positive psychology; it is underpinned by five key elements (PERMA): Positive emotion, Engagement, positive Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment.

Taking young people as the focal point, Martin's residency has looked at the key touch points in our lives - family, school, social services and peers - and how positive psychology can be built into those interactions. The focus on young people also allows the residency to provide those tools to the broader community through the training of teachers, families and public servants as well as young people.

Prof Seligman sees schools as an influential and necessary space for building these skills for families and young people. He believes that, where possible, well-being should be taught on three grounds: as an antidote to depression, a vehicle for increasing life satisfaction and as an aid to better learning and more creative thinking.

Prof Seligman's final lecture will showcase his recommendations for South Australia, as it aims to become the world's first 'flourishing state'. 

This event is part of Martin Seligman's 2012/2013 residency in partnership with:
