One of the most essential skills children are taught regarding their verbal behavior is communicating their emotions. It may seem that when we first teach an emotion and ways to express it, the client may simply go through the motions.

Happiness pervades modern life. It is a major topic of talk-show interviews, best-selling books, psychotherapeutic interactions, everyday gossip (“How can she really be happy with him?”), and personal ruminations. Poets, cartoonists, and novelists have done as good a job as psychologists in understanding it. I personally have always preferred Charles Shultz’s (the creator of the comic strip “Peanuts”) rather structural definition of happiness as “a warm puppy.”

Are we not, however, concerned with people, you may ask? Are we not concerned with the human condition? Are we not humanists?

The Behavioral and Ethical Implications of Shame in American Culture: A Multidisciplinary Perspective
Public shaming may be seen as justifiable, whether it be through bully shaming, child shaming, or even dog shaming. Social media has risen to be the most prevalent medium in which to shame others. Judges, schools, parents, and others use it as a consequence to punish behavior; however, there may be additional side effects from using shame.
Dr. Geller has been talking about using the science of behavior in conjunction with positive psychology for some time. Now it is your turn to connect the two! Recently, on social media, a book by Dr. Martin Seligman was posted and the question was asked if anyone uses these practices?
