Project Summary: Positive Psychology: Critiques, Updates, and Advancements

Please use the Project Summary Template introduced in Session 2: Project Scoping and post your updates here.

The original description for this project:

I’ve been generally dissatisfied with the texts for my Positive Psychology course and have thought many times to write my own book. There are few updates to the books I liked and the latest OER materials are from 2018 and have been critiqued for lack of updating, lack of references/indexing, lack of diversity/multi-cultural examinations, lack of balance on the benefits of negative emotions, and anti-religious bias (despite religion/spirituality being a meaningful/beneficial framework for many). I am interested in creating either a supplement/addendum to address these issues or perhaps revise a particular OER text. More guidance through the REBUS success program could even lead to another creative solution to the issues plaguing this field’s existing teaching resources.
