pw09Phil Watkins received his B.S. in psychology from the University of Oregon and his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University. He has taught in the Psychology Department at Eastern Washington University since 1990. After investigating memory biases in depression, Phil shifted his focus to gratitude and how it impacts well-being. He developed one of the most utilized measures of gratitude (the GRAT), and has been called a “pioneer in gratitude research.” He has remained active in the science of gratitude, and his research now focuses on how gratitude enhances happiness. He has published a number of scientific papers on gratitude, and has also published two books. His first book, Gratitude and the Good Life, is a treatise on the current science of gratitude. More recently he published Positive Psychology 101, which is written for a more general audience on the science of happiness and positive psychology (Springer Publishers, New York).

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

A new study reported in Social Psychology Quarterly concluded that people who pray find personalized comfort during hard times and many do so to manage a range of negative situations and emotions. These conclusions were based on in-depth interviews with victims of violent relationships with their intimate partners. Using a sample that represented wide geographic, educational and racial groups mainly from Christian backgrounds the researcher found the prayer relationship allowed victims to vent anger and other feelings with God and not fear reprisal or escalate the violence in the relationship. Prayer also served as a distraction for some similar to having a conversation with a friend and helped reduce anxiety. The researcher concluded that future researchers should consider prayer as an interaction rather than a one-sided act.
