The Science of Positive Psychology with Dr. Suzann Pileggi-Pawleski
Guest: Dr. Suzann Pileggi-Pawleski
This week we sit-down with one of the authors of this book Happy Together: Using the Science of Positive Psychology to Build Love that Lasts. Suzann Pileggi-Pawleski she also has a Master of Applied Positive Psychology degree who works as a freelance writer and well-being consultant specializing in the science of happiness and its effects on health and relationships.
She gives “Romance and Research” (TM) workshops around the world with James and she writes the “Science of Well-being” column for Live Happy, where she is also a contributing editor. Previously, she directed award-winning media relations campaigns for Fortune 500 clients and worked as a publicist at Radio City Music Hall and a producer for The Joan Rivers Show.
A year ago or so Sam listened to this book Happy Together: Using the Science of Positive Psychology to Build Love that Lasts when she was on a road trip. She liked it but felt like many of the concepts didn’t sink in as much as she would have liked. She recently reread it while doing some more research for the second edition of our book Bigger Love which we’re also going to release under a new name – to be announced. Part of why she read it was because it was also written by a happily married couple like their own book. Unlike Paddy and Sam, they are both scholars who work in the field of Positive Psychology – so this is not only their experience but also some of the science around love and happiness.
