ACSM's 2019 International Health & Fitness Summit Audio CEC: The Power of Positive Psychology

By Mary Yoke, Ph.D., FACSM, M.A.,M.M., Faculty, Indiana University, Bloomington and Indianapolis, IN

Come learn about this exciting new field! Instead of studying what can go wrong with a person’s emotional and mental health, positive psychology seeks a more balanced view of human functioning and focuses on individual strengths, positive outcomes, and on how to live well. This experiential session will be full of personal mini-experiments designed to optimize your and your clients’ well-being.

Learning Objectives

1. Participants will explore personal mini-experiments designed to increase self-awareness and well-being.

2. Participants will understand basic principles of positive psychology, including measures of strength, resilience, pleasure, positive emotions, emotional intelligence, coping skills, wisdom, courage, mindfulness, flow, and appreciation.

3. Participants will be able to describe at least two evidence-based studies on positive psychology constructs.
