The Role of "Positive Psychology" in Your Everyday Life--Buffer overwhelming depression or anxiety with your 24 values/character strengths, such as gratitude, courage, creativity, curiosity (Seligman & Peterson). Learn how to use those strengths/values more often and in new ways to your advantage.


While there are clients whose challenges are served more appropriately with traditional psychological approaches, there are clients who would benefit from the application of Positive Psychology started in the 1980's by the psychologist, Martin Seligman. He and another psychologist, Chris Peterson studied how "24 values-in-action" function to buffer people from or to cope better with negative life situations.

Those values which when used more often and in new ways can minimize the effects of life traumas and can support the development of emotionally healthier individuals. Some of these values include open-mindedness, curiosity, honesty, wisdom, love of learning, spirituality, courage, persistence, kindness and other qualities that people possess. Those are the values or "character strengths" which are emphasized and explored with clients who may find this particular approach more beneficial for them.

Positive Psychology is a movement that focuses on mental health rather than mental illness.
