Positive Psychology

Training Description

How can we best assist our clients in overcoming their symptoms and problems and crafting rewarding, meaningful lives? Positive psychology, the scientific study of human flourishing, offers helpful tools for this endeavor. In this 6-hour training, participants will explore foundational concepts from the field of positive psychology, including flow, positive emotion, grit, capitalization, and meaning in life. With this foundation in place, we will then learn about effective positive psychology intervention practices, evaluating their evidence base and learning how to use relevant exercises in clinical practice. Participants will have the option to participate in experiential learning activities designed to give them a rich understanding of the use of positive psychology intervention techniques.
