Course Number: 
MAPP 800 970

Saltzberg, Judy

Course Description: 

In this course students will extend the horizon of knowledge about positive interventions. Beginning with the rich theoretical base of psychological research on positive affect, engagement, and meaning, and building on current research on how to raise these various components of the full life, students will focus on the creation and testing of new and more effective interventions. Students will explore single interventions that integrate cognitive, affective, and somatic components, and they will experiment with ways of clustering individual interventions together for greater cumulative effect. Also emphasized will be the importance of appropriate fit between the intervention, the individual, and the cultural context so that single or clustered interventions can be applied with maximal effectiveness.
