The Cutting Edge of Positive Psychology Interventions:
Large Scale Change at the Level of Communities, States, and Nations
Clare Huntington, Professor of Law at Fordham University, will discuss ways in which law, both "family law" (marriage, divorce, custody, etc.) and the broader legal structure (e.g., social "safety nets”) could be re-structured to enable greater flourishing for families with the flourishing of children a key component. She builds her thinking off an in-depth study of the positive psychology research summed up by Chris Peterson's phrase, "Other people matter."
This seminar is relevant to those of us who work with families, women, children, organizations, and at the community and policy level. Because of its wide scope, the program is scheduled to last 90 minutes to give time for Professor Huntington's overview of her work and a dialogue with Dave Shearon, as well as questions, comments, and suggestions from the MAPP community. Professor Huntington's work addresses areas many of us care about, and perhaps we can help.
Please mark your calendars for September 12th, 2014 @ 4 p.m. Eastern Time and join us for this exciting event!
