Personal Growth and Positive Psychology
This course focuses on growth and well-being. The first part of the course will examine different models of what is meant by growth and well-being, including the Jungian psychoanalytic, humanistic psychology and existential psychology perspectives, as well as those of Native Peoples, Yoga/Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen Buddhism. The remainder of the course will survey positive psychology's empirical findings on factors that contribute to growth and well-being (e.g., optimism, hope, meaning-making, self-esteem).
