The Plasticity of Well-Being


How to train your mind for happiness like you would train your body for a marathon.

Far from being set in stone, mental well-being can be cultivated through intentional mental training. In a paper for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Cortland Dahl, PhD, and his co-authors offered a unifying framework that integrates well-being research, cognitive and affective neuroscience, and clinical psychology.

In this Mental Health Minute, Dahl discusses his paper and its clinical implications.

Dr Dahl is Chief Contemplative Officer, Healthy Minds Innovations, and Research Scientist at the Center for Healthy Minds.
