Fostering Resilience Through the Principles of Applied Positive Psychology

While many approaches to well-being emphasize contentment and pleasant emotional states, recent research has shed light on how peak experiences, flow states, and psychologically rich experiences offer a new paradigm for understanding psychological well-being and fulfillment. In this workshop, attendees will learn strategies to help clients achieve more flow experiences in their lives, and how to enhance experiences of psychological richness in order to combat stress, find meaning, and increase overall well-being and happiness.

Fostering Flow States, Peak Experiences and Psychological Richness: A New Paradigm

Whether it’s a job loss, a breakup, a pandemic, or anything else that life throws our way, we can emerge stronger by harnessing skills like self-compassion, awe, gratitude, savoring, and more. In fact, research on positive psychological principles has shown that these skills can play an important role not only in supporting our well-being during good times, but also in helping to cultivate resilience following life’s challenges. In this workshop, you’ll explore how to apply principles from applied positive psychology with your clients to help reduce suffering and foster greater fulfillment, meaning, and well-being in their lives. Learn practical tools to help clients cultivate resiliency, connection, awe, and gratitude – even during challenging times.
