I’m working on a psychology writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
One of the criticisms of positive psychology is that it privileges Â positive emotion over negative emotion. The negative emotions are more Â fundamental and most researchers characterize negative emotion as being Â more critical for survival. Given that negative emotions are hard-wired Â into the nervous system, and that those negative emotions are privileged Â over positive emotion, they are thought to have evolved prior to Â positive emotion.Â
Can happiness be achieved at the expense of avoiding Â negative emotions? What is the role of negative emotions to happiness? Â What is the relationship between positive and negative emotions when we Â are struggling with trauma and challenges?
