Although the field of clinical psychology has traditionally aimed to “fix what’s wrong,” the newer sub-field of positive psychology instead helps us to “build what’s strong.” In this experiential seminar, participants will learn about the nature of happiness, and discover how positive psychology can help us to increase happiness both in ourselves and in our clients in a powerful way.
Positive psychology has shed newfound light on the pursuit of happiness, and offers clinicians a valuable supplement to traditional approaches in their work with clients. In this seminar, participants will explore what it means to be happy, why happiness is so important, and why it can often feel so hard to come by. We will then explore 10 research-based principles for lasting well-being, drawing from positive psychology, mindfulness-based approaches, and cutting-edge neuroscience. In addition, we will introduce and put into practice over 50 evidence-based tools and techniques that can easily be implemented into clinical practice.
