Love 2.0 : how our supreme emotion affects everything we think, do, feel, and become by Barbara Fredrickson( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We all know love matters. but in this groundbreaking book positive emotions expert Barbara L. Fredrickson shows us how much, by giving us an entirely new way of understanding and appreciating it. More than happiness and even optimism, love holds the key to improving our mental and physical health as well as lengthening our lives and deepening our personal experience. Using research from her own lab, Fredrickson redefines love not as a stable behemoth, but as micro-moments of connection between people--even strangers. She demonstrates that our capacity for experiencing love can be measured and strengthened in ways that improve our health and longevity. Finally, she introduces us to informal and formal practices to unlock love in our lives, generate compassion, and even self-soothe. Rare in its scope and ambitious in its message, Love 2.0 will reinvent how you look at and experience our most powerful emotion.--From publisher description

Introducing positive psychology( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These two 30 minute programs question modern psychology's emphasis on a disease model and its obsession with explaining what is wrong with people. Armed with a growing body of data, Positive Psychology explains, celebrates, and tells all how to use what science has learned about human strengths, resilience, learned optimism, and authentic happiness. The lessons of Positive Psychology are diverse, with much to say about children and adolescents, education, finding our signature strengths, choosing work that is most rewarding for us, maintaining our health, and aging well. This series presents internationally distinguished psychologists, along with a cross- section of our fellow citizens from teenagers to ninety-two-year-olds, and from an auto mechanic to an oncology nurse in exploring these many new ideas which can change so many lives"--Montana PBS

Stepping toward Collective Mindsets An Investigation of Group- and Leader-based Synchrony in Work Teams by Tanya Vacharkulksemsuk( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The keys to creating effective team performance have long been under investigation by researchers. Past research identifies social cohesion as an important precursor, but how to achieve social cohesion is lesser understood. This dissertation proposes that at the core of an effective team is synchrony--the act of moving together as one--which has been shown to predict a variety of psychological and social outcomes. The question of whether--and if so, how--synchrony's benefits extend to the domain of team performance, however, remains untested. This multilevel study consists of two studies examining real undergraduate student teams working together over an academic semester. First, Study 1 tests for construct validity of a synchrony-based relational leadership skill, called synchrony detection, hypothesized to be related to unlocking greater team synchrony. Synchrony detection is proposed to be comprised of two latent factors: pattern recognition style and emotional competency, each with three and four measures, respectively. In addition, I developed a novel measure for this dissertation called AccuSync, which aims to gauge an individual's synchrony detection ability. Results of a confirmatory factor analysis in Study 1 indicate that the battery of measures used here do not support synchrony detection as a construct. AccuSync also demonstrates low scale reliability. Taken together, results of Study 1 warrant more construct validity studies, including development of more refined synchrony detection measures. Future considerations, promising exploratory correlations, and significance of synchrony detection are discussed in light of the null results. Second, Study 2 tests a series of predictive links between synchrony, entitativity, and cohesion as team-level characteristics and their relationship to team performance. Results of structural equation models in Study 2 reveal that synchrony unlocks team performance, as measured by instructor-assigned project grades. Specifically, synchrony enables a social process of greater team entitativity and cohesion to emerge within teams, in turn predicting better team performance. In light of significant Study 2 results, analytical alternatives for considering team-level emergent processes are provided, along with implications for leaders, managers, and educators wishing to extract the benefits of synchrony to build cohesive, yet effective, teams
Working together as one achieving social coordination through positive emotions and self-regulatory resources by Tanya Vacharkulksemsuk( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Social coordination SC is a phenomenon that plays out in a host of everyday instances e.g., flight crew, sports teams, characterized by multiple actors working toward one goal. This study examines the role of emotions and self-regulatory resources SRR in facilitating SC among dyads. Ninety-seven pairs of same-sex strangers were recruited for the study and randomly assigned to a SRR manipulation and a partner emotional connectivity task. Following the experimental manipulations, pairs played a laboratory-based SC card game, and then returned one week later to play a second round of the game. Results do not confirm the prediction that positive emotions facilitate SC, and mixed results appear for the interaction of emotions and SRR in facilitating SC. Notably, time emerges as a significant predictor of all SC measures, although no hypotheses were formulated for this effect. Strengths and limitations, and avenues for future research are discussed

Testing the Socio-Autonomic Spiral Model of Social Connection and Health by Bethany E Kok( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Social closeness is inextricably tied to physical and mental health, but the psychophysiological mechanisms that link the two are not well understood. The purpose of this dissertation is to present and test a Socio-Autonomic Spiral Model of Social Closeness and Health: A proposed self-sustaining, heritable psychophysiological system in which activity of the vagus nerve promotes self-regulation and social openness behaviors in safe situations in order to achieve the social bonds necessary for survival in the evolutionary past and health in the present. Social bonds, in turn, lead to greater psychological well-being, which results in greater vagal activity and thus more social affiliative behaviors. The predictions of the model were tested in two studies. In a longitudinal study, experimentally-induced increases in social closeness predicted increased vagal tone over eight weeks, mediated by increases in positive emotions. Contrary to previous work, vagal tone did not moderate the effectiveness of the social closeness induction. In a laboratory study, vagal tone predicted decreased anxiety when anticipating a social interaction, and this effect was mediated by the tendency to preferentially attend to social stimuli, an indicator of social openness. Unexpectedly, vagal tone was not associated with self-regulation or emotion regulation. The vagus may represent an evolved psychobiological system that promotes social affiliation and health, however, many open questions remain. In particular, the relationship between vagal tone and self-regulation is unclear and requires further study. Finally, vagal moderation of social closeness inductions may be dependent on the complexity of the induction; future research can explore the characteristics of opportunities that are enhanced by vagal tone
