602 Neuroscience and Positivity

Barbara Fredrickson & Daniel Siegel • Sunday All Day

Barbara FredricksonDan SiegelWe tend to think of love as an emotion felt only in particular relationships with specific individuals. But radical new research now reveals that love is something more immediate that can even be shared with a stranger you’ve just met. In this workshop, you’ll explore the implications of this new understanding of love for clinical practice and learn:

  • How micro-moments of love can ignite powerful mental, physical, and emotional changes
  • The connections between positive emotion, neural integration, and improvements in overall health and well-being
  • How therapists can make use of this biologically integrative experience in their clinical work to help clients enhance their ability to feel tenderness, warmth, and compassion

Barbara Fredrickson, PhD, is the Kenan Distinguished Professor of Psychology and principal investigator of the Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology Lab at the University of North Carolina. She’s the author of Love 2.0 and Positivity.

Daniel Siegel, MD, is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, codirector of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, and executive director of the Mindsight Institute. His latest book is Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain.
