Positive psychology aims to go beyond just treating mental illness, and pursues making everyday life happier and more fulfilling...Psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches as well as various other psychological and medical professionals, are using methods and techniques derived from Positive Psychology to work with a wide variety of individuals and groups: whether they be clients with a range of psychological difficulties or those wishing to simply thrive within a work context or in their personal lives...This video series is an attempt to present practitioners with a clear overview of Positive Psychology principles, its methods and processes and to give them guidance about its everyday use with a variety of clients...The series consists of 4 videos that primarily concentrate on identifying and developing clients&́#x80;™ signature strengths.
