The emerging field of Positive Psychology is a growing influence across disciplines and in our cultural mindset. The shift from a pathological problem oriented perspective to one that focuses on strengths and optimism can be a potent realignment of how we answer the question: What helps people change? In this workshop we will explore the benefits of a Purposely Positive Focus (PPF) and why the “Happiness Revolution” draws some and repels others. We will examine the clinical applications of the research on acceptance and gratitude and explore how consciously valuing happiness leads to a radically different approach to life.About the PresenterStephen Harrington, LMHC is a therapist, teacher and mentor to generations of students, colleagues, and clients.
