DESCRIPTION:

Course Description: This course will be devoted to a particular domain of research and clinical application, known as “positive psychology”. The first part of the course will touch upon some of the fundamental issues in positive psychology, particularly the study if happened and human flourishing. We will try to address a number of different questions, including: Why are some people happier than others? What are the factors that allow people to excel across situations (work, relationships, traumatic events, etc)? How other factors associated with the god life-meaning purpose, gratitude, etc-related to well-being? The second half of the course will look at how our empirical understanding of well-being can be applied to counseling. Examining both research and different treatment modalities, we will review ways to implement positive interventions into therapy.
