Assignment 2: Self-Regulation and Control

According to positive psychology, the absence of good feelings or experiences can cause more negative emotions. Focusing on the positive and bringing in positive experiences may cultivate pleasure, engagement, and meaning. Individuals can learn to control and even increase the number of positive experiences as well as to regulate and diminish the number of negative experiences.

Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, identify and analyze two articles concerning empirical evidence supporting the use of positive psychology, especially in the area of self-regulation and control.

Based on your research and analysis of the articles, address the following:

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of five positive psychology techniques.
  • Examine empirically supported positive psychology interventions to promote well-being.
  • Make a minimum of five recommendations for self-regulation and control.

Write a 3-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.

By Wednesday, October 22, 2014, deliver your assignment to the M4: Assignment 2 Dropbox.
