Positive Psychology is the study of human happiness and life satisfaction – what works in life as demonstrated through research. It is not always obvious how to translate this research into clinical work. This 2 day workshop offers a solid research base and methods of doing therapy that derive from positive psychology and fit with this research.


Participants will be better able to:

  • Use Positive Psychology research findings in their clinical work
  • Better help their clients use life energies to find their life and work directions
  • Identify factors that increase happiness for their clients and students
