DISTINGUISHED SPEAKERS

THURSDAY
11:30-12:30RED ROCK BALLROOM GH  Presenter: Lynne Cripe, Director Resilience Services, The KonTerra GroupChair: Jodie Ullman, California State University, San Bernardiino*approved for 1 CE

Resilience is crucial when caring for others in a professional or personal capacity. The cost of compassionately engaging with others can tax our strength and vitality. Whether we work in a job that brings us face to face with the suffering of others or find ourselves with personal caregiving responsibilities, we benefit from intentional focus on resilience. Drawing on the science of resilience and experience working with international humanitarian aid organizations, this presentation will discuss key factors in maintaining resilience and practical applications of these ideas.

FRIDAY
11:15-12:15RED ROCK BALLROOM GH  Presenter: David Funder, University of California, RiversideChair: Jon Grahe, Pacific Lutheran University*approved for 1 CEBehavior is a function of the person and the situation, and understanding the “personality triad” of persons, situations and behaviors requires assessment of all three. However, until recently tools for assessing situations were not available. The Riverside Situational Q-sort (RSQ) was developed to help to fill this gap, and has been applied in the study of cross-situational consistency in behavior, and also used to operationalize and test implications of situational types posited by evolutionary theory. Most recently, The International Situations Project was begun as the first attempt to quantitatively compare everyday situational experience across cultures. Collaborators from 19 countries directed college-affiliated participants (total N = 3,287) to a website where they used the RSQ to describe the situation they experienced the previous day at 7 pm, and their behavior in it. The most similar situational experience was between the USA and Canada; the least similar were South Korea and Denmark. In general, the items that varied the most across cultures described negative aspects of situational experience; the least varying items were more positive. The RSQ is shown to be a versatile tool for examining the sources of behavioral consistency, for specifying situations described by theories, and for cross-cultural comparison.

WPA AND WPPA SPECIAL EVENT

FRIDAY: FILM SCREENING OF “NORTH OF NORMAL”
Chair: Stewart I. Donaldson, Claremont Graduate University Positive psychology is the scientific study of what enables individuals, communities, and organizations to thrive. In 2013, positive psychology doctoral students Angela Mouton and Monica Montijo embarked on a worldwide adventure to ask diverse people “what do you love,” “what is your greatest passion,” and “what has been a peak experience in your life?” Their trek took them to six continents and 22 countries. They conducted 150 in-depth interviews over the span of seven months, from the cafes of New Orleans to the wild of Southern Africa to the Outback of Australia. Their interviews and observations were compiled into a feature-length movie called North of Normal. We invite you to join us for the WPA screening, and to explore the peak of human experience. The movie will be followed by discussant comments, an interview of Angela Mouton and Monica Montijo, and audience Q&A.Discussants
