Values, Purpose & Character Strengths

of your clients character strengths and values, your clients attributional style and ways to encourage an optimistic outlook and growth mindset approach to all life situations.
You will also learn how positive psychology is much more than positivity and optimism. Research is telling us that acceptance, understanding and knowledge of our emotions, is a powerful cognitive resource.
Personal growth and better lives can follow difficulty and trauma. Learning about post traumatic growth and how we can bounce back and move forward from painful situations in remarkable ways can literally change lives.
Happiness and Self Acceptance
This is a one day workshop.
Lack of self acceptance is almost at epidemic levels and is expressed in many ways. Shame, feeling inadequate, social comparison, imposter syndrome, perfectionism and general beating up on the self can mostly be accounted for by a lack of self acceptance. CBT and similar practices are increasing in general use and Positive Psychology research supports this.
Self acceptance is one of the six ingredients measured by positive psychologist Carol Ryff that are essential to our psychological wellbeing.
Learning how to support your clients most basic psychological needs is an important aspect to your coaching as it is impossible for your clients to grow and develop unless these needs are met.
Without Self acceptance it is very difficult for you or your client to flourish or to be truly happy. This workshop is a great way to learn more about how to build happiness and self love.
