Mindfulness in Positive Psychology

  • 08 Jun 2017
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Webinar

Presenter: Dr. Itai Ivtzan 

Mindfulness meditation is one of the most popular interventions in psychology, the interest in which grows year after year. Positive psychology (PP) is the fastest developing branch of psychology, whose expanding journey of investigating human flourishing has attracted great interest. What happens when these two are brought together?


This webinar will inform you about the fascinating points of convergence between mindfulness and PP. We will explore various mindfulness programs focused on increasing positive variables, such as meaning, compassion, positive emotions, strengths, and gratitude. These programs are flourishing-focused, thereby embodying the spirit of PP. We will also examine how certain popular mindfulness programs are deficit-focused (aimed at decreasing mental illness), and consequently less relevant to the goals of PP interventions.
