Many therapists are still struggling to translate the scientific findings that support Positive Psychology into specific therapeutic interventions. In this course you'll learn how to use research-based principles of Positive Psychology to lead clients toward a life of greater purpose and meaning. You'll gain strategies for behavioral change even in the absence of insight or strong motivation. By the end of the course, you'll have a framework for helping clients use all their experiences, whether dissed, pissed, blissed or blessed, as a pathway to creative change.
