AC4P with Dr. Scott Geller 012 | Positive Psychology & Behavioral Science Part 1
Dr. Geller has been talking about using the science of behavior in conjunction with positive psychology for some time. Now it is your turn to connect the two! Recently, on social media, a book by Dr. Martin Seligman was posted and the question was asked if anyone uses these practices? I won't give the answer away, but I will pose some questions: Can you operationally define PERMA? How could you use this in your personal and professional life? Can you incorporate Emotional Intelligence into your practices? Do these practices fit within our scope of practice and ethical code? Come back in two weeks to hear Dr. Geller dive deeper into emotional intelligence and why it is SO important! - For more lessons from Dr. Geller, consider buying his 50 Lessons book at https://abatechnologies.com/product/fifty-lessons-to-enrich-your-life-proven-principles-from-psychological-science/ - For more information visit http://gellerac4p.com/ for more information.
