Buddhism and Modern Psychology: Free Six-Week Online Course taught by Robert Wright
You can sign-up for this course on the Coursera website. It looks interesting and began last week. The course includes information from evolutionary psychology (a branch of psychology that influences compassion-focused therapy). An example drawn from evolutionary psychology in lecture one included a description of how our state (and our general tendency toward “better safe than sorry”) can influence what we perceive, attend to, and think about. Go to the Coursera website and search for Buddhism and Modern Psychology to learn more.
(With thanks to Ted B. for spreading the word about the course, which is how I learned about it.)
