Storyboard Text

  • Jane and Todd what can you tell me about Positive Psychology?
  • Sir, Positive Psychology all begun when Seligman had an epiphany in his rose garden
  • Sir, to add to Jane's comment, there are also the four waves of Positive Psychology. The first wave involves the Disease model which revolves around curing mental disorders such as Schizophrenia and human complexes such as inferiority.
  • Sir, Skinner, Watson and Pavlov were the originators of the second wave which was focused on Behaviourism. Skinner believed that free will was an illusion and human behaviour was largely dependent on the consequences of our previous actions. In this wave Operant Conditioning  was observed.
  • Very good guys, Jane what can you tell me about the second wave?
  • And the third wave sir is based on Humanistic Psychology. This wave is known for its major strands of thoughts. Existentialist Psychology (Soren Kierkegaard, Jean Paul Sartre) and Humanistic Psychology (Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers).
  • Excellent comment guys, Positive Psychology happens to be the fourth wave. This type of psychology has a positive orientation, concerned with authentic happiness and a good living.
  • Sir can you tell us about the five founding fathers that developed Positive Psychology?
  • I think it's best we research this one in the Library Jane,we have already taken up enough of sir's time.
  • Todd this book speaks about William James being the radical empiricism man, Abraham Maslow being the Motivation and Personality man, Martin Seligman being the character,strengths and virtue man, Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi being the flow state man and Christopher Peterson the co- author of strengths and virtues.
  • There is a book right here Todd did you even look?
  • Jane, I don't even know where to begin to look.
  • I have heard of the PERMA Model,it has to do with the elements of well being. I believe the "P" stands for positive emotion and with positive emotion there is pleasure and enjoyment. I think pleasure is connected to satisfying bodily needs for survival and enjoyment comes from intellectual stimulation and creativity.
  • Jane, but there is a book here about Pleasure and Positive experience. It makes mention of Seligman's PERMA Model
  • But Todd what does the "ERMA" stand for?
  • Jane, the "E" stands for engagement as in participating in daily activities. The "R" stands for relationships as in valuing social connections. The "M" stands for meaning as in finding a purpose on earth. Lastly, the "A" stands for accomplishments as in achieving goals and ambition.
