The last time I held a workshop on positive psychology, I wanted to make available all the content before the day. I did this to show how easy it is to share knowledge, and still have a highly useful learning environment.
So I’m simply curating them in this post so that they’re all in one place if you’d like to learn more in your own time:
We’ll be learning about what it means to be a Positive Deviant. That is, some one or group of people who come together and make change happen for the better, with no more resources available than others in similar situations.
Have you ever considered that you might have a Signature Strength? Well, the truth is we all do. What is it? It’s something which becomes your defining feature and drives all activity you do.
We will most certainly be discussing the difference between positive thinking and positive psychology. One is a mindset and how it can help provide another point of view, and the other is about the science of purposeful behaviours that help you live a more fulfilled life.
It’s hard to find ways to be your best self. People who understand often indulge in an activity where they can be their best self without care of judgement or criticism. It’s called your Third Place.
One of the most important things about positive psychology is to not disregard when Bad Things Happen. It’s vitally important to allow ourselves to experience these moments and find ways to come out of them building our resilience.
Perhaps one of the areas less well known about within positive psychology is how we can view the institutions around us – or the associations around us – so that we understand their usefulness and value.
And lastly, what better way to help you know the agenda for the day than sharing the slide deck with you?
