According to Dr George Vaillant we should not underestimate the power of love because it’s the key to happiness. He proposes two pillars of happiness: “One is love. The other is finding a way of coping with life that does not push love away. Happiness is love. Full stop,” he says.
As a well-being counsellor, coach and researcher, love is a theme that I return to time and again. We thrive when we express positive emotions for others and we flourish when we are on the receiving end of warm regard. This event explores how applied positive psychology has researched loving relationships and how we can find ways to increase well-being by creatively cultivating loving kindness in our life.
Rebecca Smith is a coach and counsellor who recently completed an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology at the University of East London. Her research centres on positive emotions and creativity.
