Positive Psychology
Lec 01
Information is just information, not practical
Your life is a collection of moments, your quality of life is defined by the
quality of the experiences of your life
How to take all your knowledge, ideas, and translate it to practice
How to stick ideas into their minds
Assignment: how to do that
o If you had opportunity to take your best ideas and knowledge, not
from the course but from your life, and you had a few hours of your
time to get people together, for like 3-4 sessions of peoples time, what
would you do, what would it look like?
o Breaks down into 2 parts: paper one and paper two
o Paper one is an overview, not like a theoreotecial but conceptual
overview of the kidns of things u think will be important
o An overview of the kinds of things youll be talking about
o One page diagramitically created, like flow chart, not an essay
because its limitng in terms of packing little bt of info in space
o No references, its not a literature review
o It’s a fully fleshed out
o In paper two, can describe it in a lot more detail
o The concepts of what you want to convery as opposed to how: but the
more how u put into it, the more feedback ull get
o Its not necessary
o Paper two is putting your idea into practice
o For example: optimism and then talk about a few ideas. Then talk
about how optimism is related to spirituality
o Describe how these things are connected
o Ex working in context and working with ppl for so and so weeks,
having one and one session, etc
o Doing as much of an overview as u can, if u want to work with people
of a certain target, ex kids, survivors of abuse, the more you think
about that and the more specific you get, the better it will be
o The most things u think are important and a general structure
o Ex, might make it a weekend retreat, make it community drop-in
sessions, upto you… put these things together and talk about the
different sessions, ex session one session two, what you will do each
day of the weekend on each day
o Talk about the steps
o PAPER two by the time get feedback, bridge the gap bw theory and
practice, this is ur workshop, now u will flush it out as much as
possible. If u are going to get readings or poems, the excercises you’ll
do to make the session as interactive as possible, more imp than a
boring speech, activities, desgining like a summer camp program
o If gonna foster questions around topic
o The more u get spec in paper two, it shld be like someone can take it
and go and do it… something that could be actually implemented
o Get into how u can get the information that ur transmitting that cld
change teir experiences, their life, changes the way they think,
motivate themselves, the skill set they have, it should stick and carry
something forward in their lives
o Write what the excercises will be, what they will look like, what
material, ur not strickly limited to positive or even psych systems,
make this integrative: might have knowledge from ur cultural context,
music, dance, u can weave that into it, that is possible
o Marking perspective: and references: need references in paper two to
back up ideas. As much as you can. Should not be a copied of it, but as
much as u can connect it to literature.
o Marking: will be the implementation of this whole thing
o Have you bridged the gap: did u think of an idea that is
implementable, the emphasis is going to be on does this look like a
workshop you can implement to help your target population
o You are not working in the idea that you are explaining other peoples
ideas, but creating your own
o Don’t take others ideas and combine them and say its ur project
o Can transfer one knowledge closely related to your own, but add
something onto it. Ex guitar to piano example student gave
o Try to motivate people to do something
o Ex I have this program, and strengthen it or make it more specifically
designed for your purpose
o The key goal is to do something that you would personally relevant to
your skill set, your knowledge, and what you can offer the world.
o There is a huge range of exactly what that looks like
o Have a specific framework, within what you are trying to do, how
much creative insight you had in creating your workshop
o You may work in small groups of upto about three: that is advisable.
That could be very beneficial: a more diverse background and skill set
should get you access more ideas
