Positive psychology is one of the most recent additions to psychology. Its focus is on what makes people happy and it comes with a number of techniques that we can add to our repertoire to help our clients to successfully achieve their goals.
As well as describing how to use the techniques, there will be time to try them out on one another to ensure that everyone leaves feeling positive that they can make the best use of these techniques with clients.
This is an all-day workshop.
The workshop costs £75.00 and includes the following:
All accompanying training notes.
Certificate of Attendance - this event counts as 7 Hours of CPD.
A delicious locally-sourced buffet lunch.
Refreshments mid-morning and afternoon.
Positive psychology looks at the individual and groups. It can be applied to workforce to make work a happier place to spend so much of our waking life. It incorporates ideas of 'Flow' and being 'in the zone' when engaged in a sport or activity. By way of an introduction to Positive Psychology, we'll look briefly at its history and compare self-determination theory and the hedonic adaptation prevention model of wellbeing. We'll discuss what makes people happy, and what, perhaps surprisingly doesn't. We'll look at improving a person's level of happiness. The course will look at the four dimensions of wellbeing, and some useful metaphors to use with clients.
Among the techniques we can use from Positive psychology are:
Recognizing your feelings
Identifying signature strengths
Three good things
Counting your blessings
Random Acts of Kindness
Using a strength in a new way
Best possible self
Learning to be optimistic
A wonderful day together
Identify your values
Each technique will be explained in detail and then attendees can try them out on each other.
