Sintesi dell'editore

Learn how positive psychology and your faith can help you flourish in this life-affirming audio series. 

Flourishing is characterized by an enthusiastic commitment to personal and professional growth and resilience in the face of disappointment. Sadly, only 20 percent of the US population appears to be flourishing by this definition.

Psychologists traditionally focused on relieving depression and anxiety. Now, positive psychology helps you maximize positive emotions in the face of life's challenges by living a virtuous life. You’ll explore the role of Christian spirituality in living a virtuous - and therefore flourishing - life. Your guide, pioneering psychologist, professor, and Jesuit priest John J. Cecero applies concepts from his book Praying Through Lifetraps: A Psycho-Spiritual Path to Freedom to explain how life traps - core fears and insecurities - prevent us from flourishing. With fresh insight, he will explore depression, anxiety, and isolation, as well as various forms of impulsivity and addiction. 

These talks illustrate how Christian spiritual tools can powerfully supplement psychology to help you flourish. You will learn specific guidelines and spiritual practices that will allow you to cultivate gratitude, temperance, humility, and forgiveness, among other key virtues. The series concludes with specific recommendations for developing and sustaining a spiritual path, with the final talk addressing an issue of paramount importance in today’s world: the call to forgive.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Real Psychological advice coupled with spiritualiy

As a Counseling Psychology graduate, I always approach books with skepticism. More so if they are moxed with Christianity. This audio program is the real deal. The author/narrator is a real psychologist and a priest. He understands the reality of mental health and provides great exercises like centering prayer for mental health. I'm an agnostic but grew up deep in the catholic tradition (I even went from first to twelve grade in a catholic school). So I always have a special place in my heart for catholics who are concerned with the neededy and the poor. instead of judging or playing the church power games. John Cecero is this kind of noble person.

Wise presenter

This audio course is delivered by Fr. John Cecero. Fr. Cecero is able to draw from his experiences as a Jesuit priest, clinical psychologist and professor/researcher to offer guidance that is both scientific and practical. I found it helpful that he is able to identify the specific life traps we are likely to encounter while seeking balance. He provides real insight into root causes and possible solutions.
