Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-being


flourish“What is it that enables you to cultivate your talents, to build deep, lasting relationships with others, to feel pleasure, and to contribute meaningfully to the world? In a word, what is it that allows you to flourish?”

In Flourish, Dr. Martin Seligman, a pioneer of Positive Psychology, explores the construct of well-being. He describes that well-being theory has five measurable pillars: Happiness (or Positive Emotion), Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment. These are interwoven with topics such as grit and resilience, through personal anecdotes, case studies, and interactive exercises.

With a focus on positive education and well-being, Flourish will be of interest to learners of all ages and all disciplines.

Flourish is the current selection for the Quiet Book Club, an initiative of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). We invite all RDC students, staff, and faculty to read the book and join us at our next meeting to share how the book has impacted you personally or professionally:
