The founder of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman, PhD, introduces Positive Psychotherapy.
In this landmark interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Seligman emphasizes that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, as psychology as usual might contend. Rather, happiness derives from an execution of our signature strengths. Seligman demonstrates a new set of rigorously tested interventions that lastingly increase happiness while decreasing depression.
Dr. Seligman discusses his predecessors Maslow, Rogers, and Beck, what he took from them, and what he changed. He proposes new questions like, What was the best experience you ever had? And he explains how easy, enormously fun and important techniques can be grafted on to therapy with all clients to help them live a more engaged, meaningful, and thus happier life.
After watching this lively, personally revealing conversation, you'll be eager to apply these innovative ideas to your psychotherapy practice!
From watching this video, you will:
- See how Positive Psychotherapy incorporates the tenets of Positive Psychology including learned optimism, authentic happiness, meaningfulness, gratitude visits, and signature strengths.
- Learn to apply new techniques in your psychotherapy work with clients to increase their happiness and well-being.
- Understand the importance in psychotherapy of both getting rid of disorder and creating sustainable happiness.
