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.
