Abstract: Donaldson, Csikszentmihalyi, & Nakamura (2020) in their new book, “Positive Psychological Science: Improving Everyday Life, Well-Being, Work, Education, and Societies across the Globe,” summarize two decades of peer-reviewed scientific research and illustrate how positive psychology interventions (PPIs) can make measurable differences in peoples lives across the globe.  Recent meta-analyses based on thousands of participants in the most rigorous intervention studies to date reveal the specific conditions under which PPIs are effective.  This presentation will summarize the state of the science of positive psychology, illustrate how this science can be used to guide the design and evaluation of PPIs, and discuss scientific and practical insights related to the application and practice of positive psychology. Register here!
