Valentine’s Day Confession

Mjl 💋

Listen, I love you. I know sometimes I’m a little bit of a disappointment. I rarely know what I want or think before I act.

Still, I want you to know that in a lifetime of rushed decisions, wrong turns & spectacular messes, you were the 1st thing that felt right.

Happy Valentine’s Day .. ☺️😘

And I will always love you even it’s not Valentines 🤗❣️

Mr. and Mrs. Positivity #poetry

Mr. and Mrs. Positivity woke up with joy. Every day is a new day. 

They don’t dwell in the past and learn from their mistakes. 

Every day is evolution. 

They are open, honest, and no walls are present. 

Every day they take a moment to reflect. 

They embrace their quirks and imperfections. 

Every day they say I love you. 

They don’t yell or scream. 

Every day they listen to each other. 

They don’t just hear the words. 

Every day they look forward and don’t look back. 

They know themselves inside and out. 

Every day they give each other respect. 

They are close when they are apart. 

Mr. and Mrs. Positivity understand what love is.

Research Interests

My research focuses on emotions, especially individual differences in emotional experience, and the role emotions play in modulating cognition. The topic of happiness unifies my primary research questions. At a descriptive level, I ask the question, who is happy? That is, what are the personality characteristics that predict the experience of many positive emotions and few negative emotions? At a process level, I ask, how do happy people think and behave differently than unhappy people? In other words, how do transient mood states and stable individual differences combine to influence cognitive processes and behaviour? Finally, at the level of personality theory, I seek to understand what ’causes’ the traits associated with happiness? That is, how do individual differences play out ‘in the moment’ and combine with situational factors to predict behaviour?
Much of this work focuses on extraversion, positive emotions, and social behaviour. Another line of research investigates differences in people’s sense of connection to nature (‘nature relatedness’) and links this to happiness and environmentally responsible behaviours.

Associate Professor

“I received my bachelors degree with highest honors from California State University, San Bernardino, before going on for my masters and PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Kansas, where I studied positive psychology, applying attachment theory to psychotherapy, and fostering resiliency in at-risk populations. As a Self Graduate Fellow at the University of Kansas, I also participated in an intensive four-year leadership development program, which paved the way for me to apply my knowledge of psychology to leadership and organizational development. After completing my pre-doctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, I joined the faculty at Widener and became the Director of our PsyD/MBA Joint Degree Program and Organizational Development Services. I teach classes on the clinical applications of attachment theory, leadership, consulting and organizational psychology. I also have an active research program and publish on applying attachment theory to psychotherapy, leadership, and organizations, and in developing positive psychology and attachment-based measurement systems for application in non-clinical settings.”

Shorty said “My primary research focus is on integrating attachment theory into leadership development and organizational consulting, as well as psychotherapy and positive psychological assessment. Attachment theory is a theory of personality that impacts human functioning across the lifespan. It underlies patterns of threat perception, emotion regulation, exploration, and interpersonal functioning. As such, it impacts all areas where people are in relationship with each other including at work. My aim is to develop attachment-based measures of leadership appropriate for administration in organizational settings. I also focus on refining the measurement of hope as a dispositional outlook on the future and orientation toward goals. Finally, I focus on using attachment theory to understand the specific mechanisms involved in transmitting positive psychological states into behaviors that foster resiliency and adaptive functioning in both at-risk and high-functioning populations.”
