How do you explain the simultaneity principle of positive psychology?
Last week, I gave a talk on positive psychology to psychology students at the University of Buckingham. I structured the talk around the five principles of appreciative inquiry which I used to explore positive psychology and the poetry of David Whyte some months ago.
As I linked each principle to what we might do in our lives, when we coach others, and when we design organizations, I felt a little inadequate on the simultaneity principle.
How can we simply explain ideas of emergence and exploring one’s relationship with the world to beginners in our field?
