The Effort and Ease of Goal Attainment [EPPSM-171:S:1]
Caroline Adams Miller and Maria Sirois
For everyone.
Setting goals and then taking steps toward reaching them demands effort. Striving, overcoming obstacles, and engaging your will in a focused endeavor moves mountains. Yet that mountain can also break your back if you fail to combine effort with ease—a sense of rest and renewal, surrender, and a willingness to let life lead for a while. Author and resilience expert Maria Sirois opens this master class on Sunday night, and Caroline Adams Miller, a leader in the field of goal attainment, guides us in an exploration of how to mix effort and ease for maximum results—including living a life you love.

Questions for Answers: Writing Toward Clarity [EPPSM-171:S:2]
Joan Borysenko
For everyone.
We want answers to life’s problems. The heavier the issue, the more anxiety we feel to get the problem solved pronto. But what if the answer is waiting for the right question? Words create worlds, and the way we push at problems can conceal possibilities. In this Master Class with psychologist and New York Times best-selling author Joan Borysenko, you explore free-writing to answer novel questions, and, in doing so, discover new perspectives on old problems.

The Science and Practice of Positivity Resonance [EPPSM-172:S:1]
Barbara Fredrickson
For everyone.
Love draws you out of your cocoon of self-absorption to attune to others. Love allows you to really see another person, holistically, with care, concern, and compassion. Within each moment of loving connection, you become sincerely invested in this other person’s well-being, simply for their own sake. And the feeling is mutual. You come to recognize that, in this loving moment, this other person is also sincerely invested in your well-being; that they truly cares for you. Relationship scientists cast this sense of mutual care as an abiding attribute of intimate relationships. 

In her book Love 2.0, Barbara Fredrickson redefines the vital emotion of love as micro-moments of positivity resonance between and among people. This Master Class offers a unique opportunity to explore the scientific underpinnings of positivity resonance in ways that bolsters its value for human health and well-being. Complementing the science, you also explore practical approaches and practices for unlocking more love in everyday life.

The Art of Teaching Positive Psychology [EPPSM-172:S:2]
Maria Sirois
For everyone.
Take the next step in your growth as a presenter, educator, coach, or speaker. This Master Class examines the crucial elements of presenting Positive Psychology tenets and tools in such a way that audience members leave prepared for lasting change. Many workshops on presenting and teaching offer guidance on how to shape a lecture, but rarely do they address core principles of sustaining change, including

  • Addressing the audience from a place of wholeness
  • Shaping content and flow to encourage the best self in action
  • Working with difficult or invisible students, as well as those who bring grace to the room
  • Offering the scaffolding of how change happens, when it succeeds, and how to plan for sustainable change.

Come dive deeply into these four arenas, while looking at how the positive can be encouraged or dampened. The class includes time to practice shaping your openings to provide audiences with the best opportunity for making real and impactful shifts.
