    Science of Happiness: Positive Psychology’s theory of wellbeing - PERMA!

    3.0 CEUs

    As American Psychological Association President (1998), Martin Seligman, said in his inaugural speech, “Psychologists need to study what makes people happy!” As ACA Task Force on Counselor Wellness Chair (2011), Gerard Lawson said, “Counselors should make it a priority to walk the talk and model wellness for their clients.”

    This training addresses both aspects of the mental health counselor: self and service provider. It is of double benefit with pragmatic applications.

    Participants will learn to:

    1. Identify 3 paths to Happiness
    2. Identify 5 elements of the PERMA model (theory of wellbeing)
    3. Learn to apply each element in your own day to day living
    4. Learn to move clients beyond surviving and striving to ‘thriving’
