Kirke Olson, PsyD
I had already been working in schools and mental health organizations for more than 20 years when on January 4, 2001 my wife and I created The Positivity Company. We started it because we felt then, and continue to feel now, that teachers and students in the educational system and clients and therapists in the mental health system are not treated with enough respect and positive regard. Following the old Sierra Club maxim “think globally – act locally” we began to do what two psychologists from a small US state (New Hampshire) can do to create a more positive world. It remains our joy and passion.
I apply Interpersonal Neurobiology, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness in K-12 education, especially with “special needs” students. Through The Positivity Company, we train therapists, physicians, teachers, school administrators, and other health care providers.
I am the author of The Invisible Classroom: Relationships, neuroscience and mindfulness in schools published by W.W. Norton & Company.
