Preparation: Read Beyond Happiness from Psychology Today
Future Agenda: Please review items for Feb-Spring 2015 here.
- Brief Mindfulness Exercise. A brave volunteer will lead us through a short mindfulness exercise.
- Discussion. Our evolving understanding of so-called negative emotions. Featured sources include Beyond Happiness (Psychology Today article) and The Upside of Your Dark Side (recent book by Todd Kashdan). Tentative plans include viewing a portion of Todd Kashdan’s recent presentation at the World Bank.
- Case Consultation. We *may* spend a portion of our meeting reviewing cases. If you have an interesting or challenging case you would like to present, please bring relevant details. Otherwise, plan to participate in consulting on others’ cases.
