Webinar Topic:
Using Happiness Interventions in Group Settings: The Happiness 101 Series

Wednesday, October 2, 2013
10:00 - 11:00 am, EST

Dr. Louise Lambert D'raven

Happiness interventions are successful and efficient means of increasing happiness; however, there are few existing programs that incorporate a full battery of positive psychology interventions for use in clinical group settings. In this webinar, Dr. Louise Lambert D'raven will present an overview of the Happiness 101 group program, how it has been used in primary health care to date and its effectiveness.

Participants who participate in the program maintain positive gains up to six months post-treatment, report greater sociability, greater positive emotions, and fewer reports of physical pain.

This webinar will be of interest to anyone who offers counseling and helping services, but will also interest members of the general public who want to learn more about how positive psychology interventions can improve their own lives and the lives of others. 

More about our webinar speaker:

Dr. Louise Lambert D'raven is the author of 'Happiness 101: A guide in positive psychology for individuals who are depressed, languishing, or flourishing'. Her latest project in this series is a follow-up book for individuals entitled 'Happiness 101: 13 simple interventions for a happier life'.


She is a registered psychologist currently teaching in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Hailing from Northern Alberta, she has worked in mental health, primary health care, and education.

She is currently working on an additional sequel in the Happiness 101 series on positive psychology in the workplace and will publish a practical guide highlighting interventions for a better work life. She is also conducting research with her students on cultural conceptualizations of happiness between Emirati and Arab students; both of which differ vastly from Western conceptualizations of happiness - stay tuned for these results shortly.
