Psyc in Teens


June 22, 2021, 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. CDT

In the world of psychology and counseling, we are often trained to find out “what is wrong with a client or person” in order to help them “fix” that part of their life. It would be interesting to see what might happen if we spent more time asking the question “what is right about you?” Positive psychology was developed in order to ask that question. The discipline focuses on the strengths that an individual possesses. It addresses the positive aspects of life and the possible future that can exist when focused on that narrative. This course will give an overview of positive psychology as well as some activities that can be utilized specifically with teens to help them identify their strengths as they navigate their challenging life journey.   Join us for an interactive course that will hopefully inspire your work with teenagers.
