Module Overview

Originated by Akbal Kaur

Gratitude, thankfulness, or gratefulness is an emotional response to benefits or beneficence from another person or experience. The experience of gratitude has historically been a focus of several world religions. It has also been a topic of interest to ancient, medieval and modern philosophers, and continues to engage contemporary western philosophers. The systematic study of gratitude within psychology only began around the year 2000, possibly because psychology traditionally focused more on understanding distress than on understanding positive emotions. The study of gratitude within psychology focuses on the understanding of the short term experience of the emotion of gratitude, individual differences in how frequently people feel gratitude, and the relationship between these two aspects. In this module we look at gratitude as a way of appreciating what is given to us in kindness and taking a positive and helpful approach to life in general.
