The psychology of passion

What is passion? Who is passionate and for which type of activities? Is passion good or bad for people? As part of the Centre for Positive Psychology’s 2017 Public Lecture Series, Professor Robert J Vallerand will present the Dualistic Model of Passion (Vallerand et al., 2003), and explore these issues. Professor Vallerand will also address the role of the determinants of passion, before proposing some directions for future research and applications.
