Happiness, Self-Help and Toxic Positivity (Ep.11)

In part two of a three-part look at the self-help industry, Dr Gary Wood and Paul Flower discuss whether self-help advice encourages toxic positivity. The episode also looks at the general theory of meritocracy, are we all equal and therefore all capable of getting the same results from our reading? Is there an over-emphasis on dramatic results? And are self-help books given to too much moralizing? This is episode 11 in the podcast series.

Based on Gary Wood’s ‘The Psychology of Wellbeing’ (published by Routledge). To read more about the book, for the UK go to: https://amzn.to/3gmgukd And for the US go to: https://amzn.to/3gmgukd
