Description:
We 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.

Objectives:
Discuss how micro-moments of love can ignite powerful mental, physical, and emotional changes
Explain the connections between positive emotion, neural integration, and improvements in overall health and well-being
Describe 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

About the Speaker:

University of North Carolina psychology professor Barbara Fredrickson is a leader in researching the impact of positive emotion in transforming our mind, body, and ability to bounce back from hard times. Her national bestseller Positivity documented the evidence showing how positive emotions enhance creativity, inventiveness, and big-picture perceptual focus. Her new book, Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do, and Become, challenges our limiting notions of love as defined by romance and marriage. The premise of her book is that even the most fleeting everyday moments of positive emotion set off a chain reaction of biological events that can have a critical impact on our overall emotional and physical health.
