Most of us are aware that positive thinking and positive psychology are not the same. Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.

      Join us for our popular six-week series, taught by Debbie Cohen. Debbie has a master’s degree in education from Harvard University and a masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout her career as a teacher and researcher, Debbie’s work has explored how best to govern attention and how to focus it to what is working in your life vs. what is wrong. She has taught Positive Psychology at Harvard and at Kripalu Yoga Center, and now in MN, she is working with the Psychiatry Department at the University of Minnesota and is part of the teaching team at 1,000 Petals (an organization that helps create healthy schools and therapeutic environments by rooting mindfulness and movement into the heart of our families and communities).
