Barbara Fredrickson mentioned her research on mindfulness & positive emotion. I think the research paper was Fredrickson et al (2008) Jnl of personality & social psych 95, 1044-1062. Bridget Reply Louis Alloro January 25, 2009 - 2:14 pm Loved the Twitter updates Senia. Much gratitude. Reply Jennifer Gosk January 25, 2009 - 3:50 pm Bridget,thanks so much for leaving the detailed information about Fredickson et al (2008) research on mindfulness and positive emotion. What a bonanza to get this information. I am working on my final integrative project as a Masters student in Counseling Psych, and I am targeting the positive effects of what mindfulness may bring to both the therapist and people who enter into the therapeutic relationship. My Best, JEN Reply Joan Young January 25, 2009 - 4:29 pm Thanks so much for the Twitter updates Senia. I hope that there will be a posting of the conference video at some point available for those of us who sadly missed it! It sounds like it was an enlightening day. Thank you.

Kathryn Reply jd January 26, 2009 - 12:36 am Kathryn, Here is a post on storytelling at sciam.org. I thought of your interest in the power of the story. http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=the-secrets-of-storytelling Jeff Reply Kathryn Britton January 27, 2009 - 8:17 pm Thank you, Jeff! I think stories can be very powerful. I always think about Albert Bandura saying that psychologists don’t have good social diffusion mechanisms, which is why he turned to serial dramas.
