Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D.

August 11, 2015|

Author of Positivity and Love 2.0, Professor Barbara Fredrickson’s most recent research offers an innovative ap-proach to understanding the multiple ways by which positive emotions promote physical health. Most known for her broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions, which identifies positive emotions as key drivers of individual and collective resource building, Dr. Fredrickson’s research reveals how positive emotions alter heart health and molecular physiology. Stepping off from this work, she has more recently developed what she has called the upward spiral theory of lifestyle change. This new integrative model positions positive emotions as creating non conscious and increasing motives for wellness behavior, rooted in enduring biological changes. In this presentation, Dr. Fredrickson will describe the origins of and evidence for this new perspective on how positive emotions promote physical health. Implications for how best to promote positive lifestyle changes are illuminated.
