Positive Psychology Lab
Resilience, Well-Being, and Modern Technology
If all you do is work to fix problems, to alleviate suffering, then by definition you are working to get people to zero, to neutral.
Dr. Martin Seligman
We are Passionate about Positive Psychology
Positive Psychology is the study of strengths, resilience, and well-being. As a group of faculty, staff, and graduate students in psychology, we are passionate about how we thrive as individuals, families, organizations, and communities, including online communities.
Working Together to Make a Difference
Students work with faculty to develop individual and group projects related to strength-based interventions, resilience, well-being, and positive media technology. Our members have written books, completed doctoral dissertations, presented posters at APA Conventions, and developed and presented trainings at national psychology training consortia and regional hospitals.
Knowledge Makes You Stronger
Psychology has moved past unhappiness and in a growing number of cases has even found cures for mental disorders. Along with countering ill-being, we are also amplifying well-being. We are asking, how can we help our clients live their best life?
