Positive Psychology for Clinical Practice

ID: 5085

This workshop will explore the rapidly growing and exciting field of Positive Psychology. In the past we have focused on what is wrong and not working in our lives. Positive Psychology is the scientific study of well-being and optimal functioning. It is a strengths-based approach to mental health which uses coaching as a process. This practical science can be applied to help people increase their well-being, build resiliency, learn their strengths and enhance their overall life satisfaction. Positive Psychology interventions can help clients alleviate and prevent mild to moderate depression and help people bounce back from adversity and feel happier. Teaching happiness skills to clients will improve their physical and emotional health. Our own personal happiness is a vital key to how effective we are as clinicians and health care practitioners. We know that happiness is also one of the most effective health interventions. Clinicians and healthcare practitioners will learn techniques that will be a useful addition to their practices and support their own well-being.
