Nerissa, you still want to be a Psychologist? No sah, Youare going to have to handle miserable depressed people all day long. What alife!!!
Sis, I’m going to have to educate you today eno. Guess whatthere’s something called positive Psychology and it’s ‘concerned withincreasing wellbeing in three’ (UWI, 2018) ways. 1) positive subjective experiences, 2)positive individual traits, and 2) positive institutions. Each of that is amain focus of positive psychology
Oh really now, so you tell people much they don’t have apositive life? When did this start?
Sister, sister, Positive Psycholgy has been in the makingsince the days of Aristotle when he looked at morality and virtue but it wasn’tnamed and recognized as it is until 1998. Come here
Oh so Psychologists understand that positive thinking andemotions can lead to mental health. So what’s most exciting about it for you Nerissa?
Well sis, pleasure and positive experiences. Remember thatpositive psychology is the study of the impact of positive behaviour andemotions on wellbeing (Henry, 2007). Well pleasure speaks to how you experienceenjoyable, exciting and happy moments. This new course ...
shows me that how much we experience positive emotiondepends of our degree of positive affect or negative affect. I found out thatyou can measure degrees of emotions. This is so exciting. Now, I know I won’tjust be dealing with persons who are depressed but I can use positive psychology to help them recover from depression
Wow, I am starting to like psychology. I see you are rushing to get ready for class.. Tell me more later. Bye
