Tuesday Talks: Can more happiness equal less depression?

Dr. Louise is the Editor of the Middle East Journal of Positive Psychology, as well as a researcher and psychologist. She is interested in sharing the tools of positive psychology to help people live happier and more fulfilling lives.

Can more happiness equal less depression?

Many people think that happiness interventions are not designed to remediate depression; but, you might want to know that positive psychology interventions, strategies designed to improve levels of subjective wellbeing (i.e., happiness), were actually first tested as tools for reducing depression? In fact, these interventions, known as PPIs, show equal, and in some cases better efficacy than cognitive-behavioral models and medication. While these have become popular for everyone since it’s important to realize that they are in fact valid “treatment”. In this session, we’ll explore some of those studies and discuss 3 easy things you can do to start pushing back against depression and other negative emotional states. Hopefully, one will fit for you.
