From the author of the international bestseller, Learned Optimism, comes a ground-breaking look at the nature of happiness and how everyone has the power to inject real joy into their lives. Martin E. Seligman is the international leader of the Positive Psychology Movement. His first trade book, the international bestseller Learned Optimism, greatly influenced the way people thought about mental health by bringing the concepts of cognitive psychology to a mass audience. Authentic Happiness is an even bigger ground-breaker. It represents the first time any scientist has placed value in the study not only of mental illness, but of 'mental wellness.' It's not about curing one's ills, but about exercising one's strengths and virtues in order to achieve what Seligman terms 'authentic happiness.' The life-changing lesson of Authentic Happiness is that, by assessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of genuine contentment and joy.

An Entire Psychology of Happiness Course Conveyed in Easy-to-Read Emails Understand the psychology of happiness. Discover why happiness is a choice. And, learn four simple ways of choosing happiness in this succinct guide that can easily be read over a weekend or long plane flight. "What a beautiful gift--a few simple steps that can end what is so often, and for so many, a futile quest for a truly happy life...This is a simple, practical guide for anyone who's searching for that elusive state called true happiness." - John McGrail, Ph.D. Clinical Therapist. "What a terrific text, especially for those who have yet to learn lessons of happiness, success, and their personal responsibility in making each happen. Definitely a must read for all!"- LaQuisha Beckum Ed.S. Professor of Psychology. About Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails Have you found yourself caught in the happiness trap: in the continual pursuit of happiness? After years of pursuing happiness through money, relationships, and material possessions, Vickay found herself unfulfilled and unhappy. A college course on the psychology of happiness taught by a philosophy instructor piqued her curiosity. On a whim she was inspired to contact the professor for some insights on how to break out of her rut. His ideas forever changed her approach to finding happiness and started her on a path towards living life more skillfully. It all began with an email, containing a simple question, asked at the right time: How can I be happier? Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails is the answer to that question. Through these seven emails, the professor shares three key concepts and four critical skills for living a happy life: - What makes us happy? - If happiness is a choice, why don't we always choose it? - What is happiness anyway? - How can we experience more peace and less negativity? - How can we experience more joy? - How can we be more engaged and satisfied with our lives? - How can we live a meaningful life and rediscover our sense of purpose? Topics Include: the happiness equation; positive psychology; flow experiences; the hedonic treadmill; hedonic adaptation; cultural conditioning and the unconscious mind; mindfulness and meditation; gratitude; negative thinking and the negativity bias; internal locus of control, and much more. The professor draws on modern psychological research to provide practical tools for experiencing consistent, everyday happiness, but he also raises philosophical questions that will have you discovering your own unique insights on life. Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails is more than a collection of emails or an introductory textbook to positive psychology. It is an inspirational, thought-provoking guide to the science of happiness and to a life well lived. Whether over a week, weekend, or long plane flight, what better investment of your time than to learn the basics of the psychology of happiness? Why not learn how to be happy starting today?

This book explores the unprecedented challenge of involuntary singleness for women, and the implications of disregarding this challenge for the Christian (and particularly, baptistic) communities of faith. It argues that these communities not only fail involuntarily single women, but also in so doing, suffer a serious detriment to their own communal health and Christian witness. Taking the challenge of involuntary singleness as a test case, this book explores the method of convictional theology and argues for a holistic framework that can draw together the personal, communal, and visionary spheres of human existence. Although primarily a work of theological ethics, it also draws from a number of different disciplines, including cultural studies and sociology as well as intersections of science and theology.

Exploring the connection between families and inequality, Failure to Flourish: How Law Undermines Family Relationships argues that the legal regulation of families stands fundamentally at odds with the needs of families. Strong, stable, positive relationships are essential for both individuals and society to flourish, but from transportation policy to the criminal justice system, and from divorce rules to the child welfare system, the legal system makes it harder for parents to provide children with these kinds of relationships, exacerbating the growing inequality in America. Failure to Flourish contends that we must re-orient the legal system to help families avoid crises and, when conflicts arise, intervene in a manner that heals relationships. To understand how wrong our family law system has gone and what we need to repair it, Failure to Flourish takes us from ancient Greece to cutting-edge psychological research, and from the chaotic corridors of local family courts to a quiet revolution under way in how services are provided to families in need. Incorporating the latest insights of positive psychology and social science research, the book sets forth a new, more emotionally intelligent vision for a legal system that not only resolves conflict but actively encourages the healthy relationships that are at the core of a stable society.

Not exercising as much as you should? Counting your calories in your sleep? Feeling ashamed for not being happier? You may be a victim of the wellness syndrome. In this ground-breaking new book, Carl Cederström and André Spicer argue that the ever-present pressure to maximize our wellness has started to work against us, making us feel worse and provoking us to withdraw into ourselves. The Wellness Syndrome follows health freaks who go to extremes to find the perfect diet, corporate athletes who start the day with a dance party, and the self-trackers who monitor everything, including their own toilet habits. This is a world where feeling good has become indistinguishable from being good. Visions of social change have been reduced to dreams of individual transformation, political debate has been replaced by insipid moralising, and scientific evidence has been traded for new-age delusions. A lively and humorous diagnosis of the cult of wellness, this book is an indispensable guide for everyone suspicious of our relentless quest to be happier and healthier.
