The good life. We all want it. We all want to know the secret formula for attaining it. But the simplistic, often misleading prescriptions for the good life that are tossed around in the popular media, books, and online, can push the good life further out of our reach. Psychologist, and Founding Chair of the Canadian Positive Psychology Association, Jamie Gruman, explains how a balanced viewpoint helps us properly understand the good life and make it a reality.
Jamie Gruman’s passion is to understand the psychological underpinnings of effective living and effectively organizing human behavior. Jamie Gruman is a professor of organizational behaviour at the University of Guelph in Canada and is the Founding Chair of the Canadian Positive Psychology Association. He is co-editor of Applied Social Psychology: Understanding and Addressing Social and Practical Problems, now in a 3rd edition. The book, and his career, focus on understanding the psychological foundations of human behavior and how this understanding allows us to structure activities, organizations, and interventions to promote the outcomes we most desire.
