I can hear it, Karla.
I am hearing just fine, Karla.
Thank you! Im hearing already, too.
Pleasure to be in the same virtual room as Dr. Fredrickson, I’ve cited you a bunch and love your broaden build theory :)
can you contextualize what is your definition of “mind”?
Hi everyone, please feel free to type any questions you have in the chat
Loved this section of the paper - “Especially during trying times, like the current COVID-19 pandemic, it’s vital to recognize that positive emotions can co-exist with negative emotions and that engaging in strategies to boost joy and love during this global crisis does not require us to turn a blind eye to fear and grief. Even in the midst of fearing the worst, humans reliably yearn for better. That, indeed, is the textbook definition of the positive emotion of hope (Lazarus, 1991) and the empirical description of resilience (Tugade & Fredrickson, 2004).”
Dr. Fredrickson, thank you so much for your wonderful research. Your book Positivity has been in my syllabus for my students for every semester for the last 7 years. We have all benefitted greatly from it. I was able to demonstrate that positivity had a direct positive effect upon their course completion, participation, papers submitted, etc. Your work is transformative.
Thank you, Dr. Fredrickson; it is a pleasure to participate live with you today. I use your Broaden Build Theory in my practice, and this is very interesting and helpful
Professor Fredrickson will have about 10 minutes for Q&A. Please type questions in chat.
Thank you for joining us today! I am curious about control variables for the positivity resonance —> COVID behaviors.
Question: in your research have you found differences in social connections in our virtual, non-physical/low in-person connections/interactions world in COVID and what impacts are you seeing in Positive Resonance?
I love it!! Yes! It all starts with us and those close by 🙂
Thank you! great summary!
of your fantastic work
question: any thoughts on if/how a mindfulness practice (ie loving kindness) creates positivity resonance without interacting with others? (ie imagining social interaction)
Question, in your research have you found if there has been a change in p. resonance in the relationships in families? parents with children, teens, etc? or anything related to families that you could share I would really appreciate.
Thank you so much. I am excited to see some of the current directions in positivity resonance! I have been implementing this in my positive psychology courses for a few years now.
Question: Thank you s much! Could you talk a bit more about the measurement of positivity resonance?
Jony Weiss, MPH
Question: What are some of the specific examples of how people have answered the when, where and how question of creating positive heartfelt connections?
Question: What is the impact you want to have on the world?
Wouldn’t it be great to encourage PR behaviors across racial lines (and other categories of ‘difference?’ Thx for an inspirational body of work?
Question: What variance/uniformity have you and your colleagues seen with positivity resonance across different cultures?
Thank you, Dr. Fredrickson; where can we find this new study? Have you developed specific micro-interventions for this study?
Thank you Dr. Fredrickson for your ongoing trailblazing in great service to humanity!!
Dr. Fredrickson has the BEST Loving-Kindness meditations at http://positivityresonance.com/meditations.html
Do you have any thoughts about how positivity resonance might connect to the epigenetics of well-being?
As a clinician who works with addiction, I have noticed how often addicted clients relapse as they improve. These clients, often trauma survivors, have little resilience for positive and expansive emotions. Any specific ideas for addiction and building resilience? Thanks!
@Robin Johnson--thanks for the link!
Can you speak to to the role of positive emotions to the longer term sustainability of interventions? (In a 2010 paper with Cohn, you had found that those that had experienced positive emotions at the start of a loving-kindness intervention were more likely to continue meditating a year later - have you found more of this type of finding?)
Thank you Dr. Fredrickson for your groundbreaking research. I teach your theories in a positive psychology course, and particularly value your work on broaden and build and how it promotes inclusive social thinking. Wishing you all the best!

Great talk. Thanks for sharing this information on positivity resonance & BIPR methodology.
That's such a beautiful example of intention setting for human connection. Thanks for all of your powerful positivity research and outreach.
Thank you Dr. Fredrickson for your wonderful talk and research! I studied your work and watched you give a talk in my Positive Organizational Behavior and Wellbeing grad class. Your concepts still affect me in a very positive way! Elaine
