The Positive Psychology Podcast - Bringing The Science Of Happiness To Your Earbuds With Kristen Truempy

Sinopse

The science of the good life? Sorry this is not about booze, sex and the contemporary flavour of Rock n’Roll. We talk about the stuff that usually only tree huggers have the courage to embrace: appreciation of beauty, positive emotions, gratitude or positive relationships. However we, that is positive psychology researchers and practitioners bury ourselves in books, set out to experiment and then write it all up in a style that is usually about as engaging as watching an avocado turn brown. And that’s the problem: if you are not an academic you probably want a little bit more excitement than pages and pages of densely written journals can provide. Even if you are an academic who has the time to read everything that is out there? So in an effort to save your eyes from become rectangular-shaped the Positive Psychology Podcast brings the science of the good life to your earbuds. Sometimes we might get quite serious too, for example when discussing topics like post-traumatic-growth or positive parenting.

    115 - Narcissism with Barbara Monett - The Positive Psychology Podcast

    05/11/2019 Duração: 01h02min

    The word narcissist is bandied around quite a lot these days. What is it from a clinical perspective? When does thinking well of yourself actually mean something darker is going on? And what can people do who live with or love(d) a narcissist? Barbara Monett is here to illuminate us on these issues both from a professional and a personal perspective. This is a longer one but I think it's worth sticking around, especially since Barbara dropped a truth bomb at the end that I feel is applicable to parents, teachers, bosses and anyone who has to work with others.

    One thing that I have been obsessed about for years is bringing the message of positive psychology to places where they might not be expected. That's why I started the podcast in the first place, fooled around with Amazon Alexa and most recently started to have some fun with GarageBand. Therefore I proudly present my first piece of music. Have fun and try to listen to the lyrics :)

    112 - Saving Democracy Together - The Positive Psychology Podcast

    27/04/2019 Duração: 33min

    Democracy is a huge force for good in the world and it's under threat. It's one of the things we take the granted the most but pay a very high price if it crumbles. Civic duties might not be as sexy as catchy habits or yoga poses but they are key to living peacefully and creating the conditions so people can flourish. In this episode we talk about the relationship between democracy and happiness, what democracy is, what helps and what hinders democracy. Also if flamingos and giraffes could have babies with each other and then talk, that's exactly what I sound like in this episode.

    101 - Virtual Reality Assessments - The Positive Psychology Podcast

    11/02/2018 Duração: 36min

    This episode is mostly for professionals and students in positive psychology, HR or management. We can produce the best research in the world but if we don't go where the majority of the worlds' attention is heading, it will not matter how good we are. Whenever something new comes along, like say the internet, smartphones or even the teabag people always repeat the same reasons why it's stupid, irrelevant or dangerous (There is actually a fantastic podcast that covers this topic called The Pessimists' Archive). Then once mass adoption hits they play catch up and try to be seen in a sea of millions (Good luck starting an app in the Appstore in 2018). That's why I hugely respect what CAPP has done. They have combined the technology of virtual reality with their expertise of personality assessment to come up with a novel product that I believe a lot of HR people will start to use in the near future. Even if you are not interested in virtual reality in itself this episode is worth listening to, as Jamie Betts exp
