Social Norms 3-Part Series: Webinar #1: An Introduction to the Science of the Positive

Webinar 1: An Introduction to the Science of the Positive

July 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm ET/ 11:00 am CT/ 10:00 am MT

The Science of the Positive is the study of how positive factors impact culture and experience. Those of us who work as health and safety professionals can sometimes become so focused on the problems we are trying to reduce that we forget to identify and cultivate the strengths and protective factors that keep our communities strong. The Science of the Positive reverses this problem-centered frame, and focuses on growing the healthy, positive, protective factors that already exist in our communities.

Participants will: 

  1. Identify how the four domains of Spirit, Science, Action, and Return work together to create a synergistic cycle of positive transformation
  2. Demonstrate understanding of what it means to "Start with Spirit"
  3. Discuss how the Science of the Positive is an environmental framework that relates to different categories (universal, secondary, targeted) in the prevention triangle
