The recent research in positive psychology has sparked significant changes in thinking and methodology for practitioners in all arenas of counseling and coaching. Yet, many of the clients we serve experience blocks and barriers due to physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Is positive psychology truly accessible to ALL individuals? Or is it a gimmicky, fluffy trend that will eventually fade?

This workshop will address some of the core critiques of positive psychology and offer stories, strategies, and tools to help our clients flourish, enhance well-being, and develop resilience to get the most out of life.
