The Military Loves Positive Psychology, But Does It Work?

think.kera.org 3

Some psychologists have shifted their work from analyzing anxieties to offering ways to make people happier – including members of the military. Jesse Singal is a contributing writer at New York magazine, and he joins host Krys Boyd to talk about a U.S. military move to adopt new methods for addressing PTSD and resiliency without the science to back it up. His article, published in The Chronicle of Higher Education, is headlined “Positive Psychology Goes to War.”
