We will be reading and discussing the book: Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-being by Martin Seligman, PhD. Here is a review from Amazon- “Seligman, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania and the guru of the "positive psychology" movement, abandons his previous emphasis on happiness, which he now views as simplistic, to examine how individuals might achieve a richer, multilayered goal: a life of well-being. He identifies four factors that can help individuals thrive: positive emotion, engagement with what one is doing, a sense of accomplishment, and good relationships. and perseverance.”
