Love 2.0 : how our supreme emotion affects everything we think, do, feel, and become by Barbara Fredrickson ( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 393 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

Deconstructing mindfulness and constructing mental health understanding mindfulness and its mechanisms of action by Kimberly A Coffey ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Mindfulness is associated with improved mental health, but the mechanisms by which it influences mental health are currently unclear. The sequence of two studies presented here attempted to better understand mindfulness, as a construct, and explored the potential mechanisms by which it might influence mental health. These studies examined mindfulness as a naturally-varying, individual difference in a non-clinical sample of undergraduate participants. The first study examined the factor structure of current measures of mindfulness and emotion regulation. Results indicated that the terms mindfulness and emotion regulation refer to heterogeneous and overlapping constructs, and may be more accurately thought of as present-centered attention, acceptance of experience, clarity about one's internal experience, and the ability to manage negative emotions. Furthermore, clarity and the ability to manage negative emotions may be sequelae of the two most commonly-recognized components of mindfulness, present-centered attention and acceptance of experience. The second study explored the possible mediating roles of clarity about one's internal life, the ability to manage negative emotions, non-attachment or the extent to which one's happiness is independent of specific outcomes and events, and rumination in the relationship between mindfulness and two aspects of mental health, psychological distress and flourishing mental health. Results indicated that present-centered attention and acceptance of one's experience contributed to greater clarity about one's internal life, which in turn contributed to an increased ability to regulate negative affect. This ability was associated with a decreased tendency to view one's happiness as contingent upon external circumstances, which was in turn associated with less rumination. Increased ability to manage negative affect and less rumination were associated with less psychological distress and greater flourishing mental health. Attention exhibited a complex and paradoxical relationship with psychological distress, whereby an increased tendency to observe one's present-moment experience was directly associated with greater psychological distress, but indirectly associated with diminished distress via Attention's salubrious impact on intervening variables in the model

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
