Our MasterClass on positivity is a rich and inspiring tour of the science of positive emotions and its translation into coaching tools and practices based on the work of Barbara Fredrickson. Barbara L. Fredrickson, Ph.D. earned her undergraduate degree from Carleton College and her doctorate from Stanford University. She is currently Kenan Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with appointments in Psychology and the Kenan-Flagler School of Business. She is also Director of the Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology Laboratory (a.k.a., PEP Lab). We provide exclusive interviews with Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D. and discuss why we need positive emotions, based on the groundbreaking research of the interdependence of positive emotions and physical health.
