Transform Your Clinical Skills
A revolution is underway in human services, health and education. In the past,
we have focused on deficits, what is wrong and how to make it right. That model
works and has served us well. Now, however, a profound shift is changing how we
will practice. From the 1960s to 1995, problem-focused studies outnumbered
strength-focused studies by about 20 to 1. Over the past ten years,
psychological research has shifted to focus on joy, resiliency, strengths and
virtues, changing how we will be practicing in the coming years. Clinicians have
been hearing about these changes. This seminar is an opportunity to learn the
state-of-the-art in happiness and positive psychotherapy.
Your own personal level of happiness is a vital key to how effective you are as
a clinician, counselor, educator or leader. We now know that happiness is also
one of the most effective health interventions. Teaching patients happiness
skills will improve their physical and emotional health. Of course, you will
learn about powerful and easy to apply interventions for your patients and
clients. More than that, in this workshop, your trainer will give you personal
keys to increasing your own happiness. You will take home tools to help others,
but you will also take home greater personal fulfillment.

"I've been to many workshops where I walked away
bored and feeling like I already knew almost everything presented. Even though
I've done a lot of reading about Positive Psychology, I did not feel that way
about your workshop. You had so many great stories and interesting research
results that I felt like I was still really learning both from your content and
the way you presented it. Thanks so much."
Kristie Conditt, Psychologist, Cedar Falls, IA

Changes Our Lives' was great! I truly enjoyed your presentation. You were

conducted a fantastic seminar and I am applying what I have learned."
