Workshop: Positive Psychology: thrive through your strengths
How can we strive to live a “good life”?
What if there was another way to develop self-esteem, confidence, resilience, and contentment in life with less focus on our negative experiences, or focus on ‘fixing’ ourselves?
Psychology should be: -as concerned with strength as with weakness -as interested in building the best in life as repairing the worst -as concerned with making the lives of normal people fulfilling and with nurturing high talent as with healing pathology
“Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living” (Peterson, 2008). It is different to other approaches in the field as it has a focus on the strengths of a individual and what could make them function at a greater level, as opposed to focusing on repairing someone so they can function at a ‘normal’ level. Positive Psychology can help to change your outlook, and small shifts in perspectives can help to facilitate bigger changes.
If you would like to know more about how to cultivate experiences and the qualities you have to strive for a more meaningful life, then this is the workshop for you.
In this workshop you will learn:
What the “positive” in Positive Psychology means.
The elements of positive psychological well-being and happiness.
To develop an appreciation of a more optimistic outlook.
To learn more about your own character strengths and virtues.
Practical tools to help you cultivate your strengths and areas of your character you would like to develop.
Think about how you can use your strengths to build resilience to challenges.
