Taking in the Good:  Weaving Positive Emotions, Optimism & Resilience into the Brain & Self

Taking in the Good:  Weaving Positive Emotions, Optimism & Resilience into the Brain & Self

By Rick Hanson, PhD

Neuropsychologist and mindfulness expert, Dr Rick Hanson explains how the brain evolved a negativity bias, so it’s like Velcro for negative experiences but Teflon for positive ones! The unfortunate results include a heightened reactivity to threats and stress, anxiety, depression – and limited gains in psychotherapy. Yet through mindful attention to the four steps of “taking in the good,” clients can internalize positive experiences in implicit memory systems, for improved mood, coping, motivation for therapy, and healing of painful, even traumatic experiences.  

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how the brain evolved a negativity bias
  • Teach clients the three steps of deliberately internalizing positive experiences.
  • Teach clients how to pair positive and negative experiences to soothe and replace
