Toxic positivity is the idea that we should maintain a positive attitude no matter how difficult a situation is. While optimism can be helpful to get through challenges, a toxic positivity mindset doesn't allow for nuance or complex emotions, which are part of the human experience. This program will explore toxic positivity in our culture and on social media, and provide strategies for having more dynamic conversations about challenging situations.
