Optimism and hope are not random feelings; they can be conscious choices. Martin E.P. Seligman, professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, is one of the world's leading authorities on learned helplessness and its relation to optimism and hope. He is also the best-selling author of Learned Optimism (Knopf, 1991). In recognition of his contribution to the field, the John Templeton Foundation hosted a symposium in 1998 to honor his work and to document its tremendous influence on the world of psychological research. This volume brings together eminent psychologists and professionals whose work has been greatly influenced by Seligman's innovative approach. The contributions include those of Steven Maier who examines the neurobiology of helplessness and resilience. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema looks at resilience among bereaved people and how personality variables, such as optimism and coping styles, can affect this state. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi relates his research in understanding happiness by focusing on the phenomenon of "flow," a state of present-mindedness that happens when people are totally immersed in what they love doing. David Myers discusses the relationship of hope and happiness to religion. Dr. Seligman's work in learning how to transform negative thoughts offers many people the opportunity to rise above pessimism and depression. The impact of these feelings on our physical and psychological states can be proved and studied, as this volume so clearly demonstrates.
