Speech Title: Post-COVID Overview of Seligman’s Positive Psychology in Interpersonal Communication

Abstract: The post-COVID era witnessed disrupted human communication, adversely affecting psychological wellbeing and mental health as the severe repercussions of lockdown, quarantine, social distancing, alienation, and isolation. Seligman’s positive psychology, a holistic approach with multicultural, interdisciplinary, and integrative insights, lighted the mainstream dialogues by shifting from problem-orientated discourses to human strengths in communication. Here in this invited speech, I provide an overview of positivity in human communication that can enhance the individual’s efficacy, resilience, and optimism via intra/interpersonal relationships. Relational behavior is determined by physical needs, emotions, and situational stimuli as the individual seeks pleasure and avoids pain. Positive communication acts as the buffers against mental illness, social conflicts, anxiety, depression, and stress. It can generate courage, future-mindedness, optimism, equilibrium, motivation, perseverance, and the capacity for flow and insight in building a balanced life. In the post-COVID era, people need to be reminded of the significance of the positive, supportive relationship that can empower them in fighting against probable future misfortunes and direct them to a flourishing future in the totality of social involvement and engagement.

Bio: Titled as Talent, Prof. Farzaneh Haratyan earned her first MA in TEFL and first PhD in English Language and Literature from UM, Kuala Lumpur, and studied her second MA and PhD in General Psychology at IAU. Her interest lies in the way psychological theories can be applied to education and language studies. She has also been working as an educational psychologist and a counselor applying CT, REBT, and ERS. She has had speeches and lectures in conferences and workshops regarding self-regulation. Currently she is supervising and examining MA and PhD theses in addition to collaborating in research and writing papers with her colleagues. She thinks that recent findings in positive psychology regarding the significant notions of optimal functioning, authentic happiness, excellence, self-actualization, life meaning, motivation, metacognitive awareness, mindfulness, social learning, group functioning, identity, scaffolding, and self-efficacy should be employed in the educational settings.
