Lesser known Positive Psychology Strategies and Insights with Dr. Greg Evans


In this interactive session Dr. Evans will investigate the potential benefits and limitations of the creation and empirical testing  of the main positive psychology interventions. 

He will also explore some lesser known insights and strategies including academic understanding vs. experiencing happiness, cognitive vs. emotionally based destructive emotions, mind vs. body positive psychology strategies, the levity effect, the difference between wanting and liking, the importance of contrasts on the brain, and thinking vs. blinking.


More about Greg Evans:


Greg Evans earned a PhD from the University of Queensland studying the area of positive psychology; a relatively new field in psychology that focuses primarily on identifying and building what is right with people and societies, rather than simply diagnosing and treating what is wrong. Greg is currently the director of The Happiness Enhancement Group (HEG) which attempts to promote and increase happiness and human flourishing in individuals, couples, families, organizations, schools, and communities through the applied use of evidence-based positive psychology. He is the creator of The Applied Positive Psychology Program; A professional evidence-based certification course on the science, philosophy, and experience of happiness. Greg also works with organizations based on a large amount of research suggesting happiness (i.e., human flourishing or a state of maximum human functioning) is the primary precursor to success, rather than just the result or what is known in academic and corporate circles as the happiness advantage.
