2022 Online Children’s Mental Health Symposium – Dr. Rick Hanson KEYNOTE (USD)
DR. RICK HANSON | THE NEUROSCIENCE OF HAPPINESS
To deal with life’s challenges and find happiness along the way, we need inner strengths like grit and gratitude, compassion and self-worth. To develop these psychological resources, we must install experiences of them into the nervous system.
But the brain has a negativity bias that makes it like Velcro for bad experiences but Teflon for good ones. As a result, useful experiences of psychological strengths usually wash through us like water through a sieve, while frustration, anxiety, and anger are quickly internalized. This flattens the results of both formal interventions such as psychotherapy and informal efforts to heal and grow.
In this experiential presentation, we’ll explore evidence-based ways to beat the negativity bias and turn passing experiences into lasting inner strengths hardwired into the brain. You’ll learn the HEAL methods of positive neuroplasticity for developing any psychological resource. Then we’ll apply these tools to developing greater calm, contentment, and confidence.
Learning is the strength of strengths, the one we draw upon to grow the rest of them. When we know how to foster our own social-emotional learning with the tools of positive neuroplasticity, then we have a remarkable power to steepen our own growth curve each day. Then both adults and children can meet the challenges of life with an inner core of resilient well-being.
