Positive Psychology is a relatively new branch of psychology as introduced in 1998 by Professor Martin Seligman, but it has quickly developed a large following amongst the practitioners around the globe. It concentrates on studying and promoting positive human functioning, and developing effective interventions that help to support thriving individuals, families, and communities. Positive psychology aims to go beyond just treating mental illness, and pursues making everyday life happier and more fulfilling.

A practical application of positive psychology is to assist clients in identifying their “signature strengths”, to guide them in practicing these strengths in new ways in order to increase and sustain their well-being. Psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches, various other psychological and medical professionals, are using methods and techniques derived from Positive Psychology to work with a wide variety of individuals and groups: whether they be clients with a range of psychological difficulties or those wishing to simply thrive within a work context or in their personal lives.

This DVD series is an attempt to present practitioners with a clear overview of Positive Psychology principles, its methods and processes and give them guidance about its everyday use with the variety of clients.

You will see an exclusive interview with Paul Grantham, who explores such important features of Positive Psychology as “virtues”, “character strengths” and “signature strengths” and outlines the best ways of using them in practice.

Then you will watch a live session in which Paul Grantham uses the VIA Character Strengths survey results with a client.

The session is followed by a detailed and in-depth discussion with further practical recommendations for therapists on how to use the VIA survey with their clients.

This video material is a part of a training series on Positive Psychology that concentrates on introducing it to the viewer through a combination of demonstration, discussion and reflection. The video series is  designed as a TRAINING TOOL for everyone who works with clients and wants to learn more about this evidence-based  effective therapeutic approach. Suitable for therapists, coaches, teaches, and everyone involved in caring professions.
