The Positive Psychology Tool Box:
Practical Strategies for Maximizing Clients' Resilience and Strength
This high-energy interactive workshop provides an overview of what we've learned from a decade of positive psychology research — as it applies to mental illness and substance abuse, trauma-related disorders, and challenging classroom behaviors. We'll explore a variety of specific clinical applications which can easily be applied to the work you are already doing.
What can I expect to gain from this workshop?
We'll move quickly to practical applications among the types of clients who you work with every day.
You will consider how positive psychology techniques integrate with your current skill set and style. As we challenge ourselves to see not just pathology but strengths and coping history, we may even identify our own personal areas of potential improvement.
You will gain a wide range of concrete skills, including how to elicit clients' highest visions of themselves and best hopes for treatment outcome.
We'll emphasize a cultural competency approach which affirms open-ended inquiry into our clients' experiences and values.
By the end of the workshop, you will identify specific applications of the positive psychology techniques we discuss in the workshop to your current caseload.
