Much is made over the origins and treatment of emotional disturbances, including depression, anger, and anxiety. The goal that many clients come into therapy with is “I just want to feel happy again.” We know how to treat the problem emotions. Do we know how to create happiness? Finally research has been done on the biology and psychology of happiness, and how to intentionally pursue it. This workshop is for professionals who want to learn this for themselves and then teach it to their clients. It will present a viable alternative to simply reducing problematic emotions by using skills to replace them with something positive.The training will include both didactic and experiential learning.
