Title: Positive Psychology and Vegetarianism: Exploring the Connections

Positive Psychology is a proactive approach to mental health which focuses on people’s strengths and on what is going well in people’s lives, rather than on their weaknesses and problems. The Melbourne area is home to Geelong Grammar School, perhaps the Education world’s top practitioner of Positive Psychology. This presentation begins by explaining Positive Psychology and then explores connections between Positive Psychology and vegetarianism. These connections include: (1) in both, people take control of their lives to promote positive developments; (2) in both, people show gratitude to others; (3) in both, people exercise empathy and perform acts of kindness for others.
