The Role of Altruism in a Meaningful Life [electronic resource]

Watson, Mary Ann, Ph. D.
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Although Ethiopia and the U.S. are worlds apart economically, citizens of both countries cite the same factors when asked what makes their lives meaningful. Is it possible that humanitarian ideals could play a part once a community's basic survival needs are met? This program discusses the role of altruism in personal happiness, profiling individuals from vastly different cultures who all say that helping others is key. Experts in positive psychology explain how the charitable impulse relates to well-being, and the link is further explored when African and American volunteers from four international philanthropic groups tell why they get involved. In addition, the video looks at how, when, and why altruism develops in children.
