I’m very excited to announce the publication of the text Exploring Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness and Well-Being co-authored with my dear friend, mentor and brilliant psychologist Erik M. Gregory and published by ABC-Clio. Although there are some excellent books on positive psychology, this is the first book on positive psychology that has chapters dedicated to Storytelling and Positive Psychology and the Neuroscience of Positive Psychology. We also include media-based examples and cases from popular culture, such as archetypes and superheroes, and exercises that allow readers to explore the benefits of positive psychology for themselves, such as creating a self-story portfolio and cultivating gratitude and mindfulness. Just received my author’s copy in the mail today. Very cool!
We will be discussing topics from the text on the MPRC website in the coming weeks. If you have questions, let us know!
