V114 Happily Even After

Fostering Well-Being and Resilience in Difficult Times

In recent years, research has shown that positive psychological principles can play an important role both in fostering well-being during good times, but also in cultivating resilience after life’s worst moments. As much of the world begins to emerge from a time of unprecedented crisis, we have an opportunity both individually and collectively to face the future with greater compassion, gratefulness, wonder, and kindness. Drawing from positive psychology, mindfulness-based approaches, and cutting-edge neuroscience, this workshop will examine how positive psychological practices can help reduce suffering and foster greater well-being. You’ll explore: 

  • Common barriers to well-being and how the COVID-19 crisis exacerbated already-troubling trends 
  • The positive psychology literature on the impact of positive emotional states on health, relationships, creativity, and job performance  
  • How positive neuroplasticity can help strengthen the brain regions linked to well-being 
  • Key principles for increasing happiness and well-being, including awe, gratitude, compassion-based approaches, savoring, and psychological richness
