Positive Psychology for Health Professionals

This is a flexible course aimed at those working in healthcare who want to explore positive psychology and its practices for wellbeing, whether that’s to support personal resilience or to use with patients, clients or service users. Positive psychology offers an evidence-based approach to mental health. It is especially helpful to people with persistent low mood and long-term health conditions who would prefer a non-pharmaceutical approach to increasing psychological wellbeing. Health professionals and therapists will find the techniques a useful addition to their skills and to support their own well-being.  Choose any of the following elements or others from the wider science of wellbeing. We will design the training to suit your needs.

  • Introduction to Positive Psychology
  • Models of Happiness, Well-being & Flourishing
  • Flow, the satisfaction of being ‘in the zone’
  • Positive Emotions & Positivity Practices
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Resilience 
  • Optimism & Hope 
  • Strengths: The Positive Self
  • Using Strengths in Coaching & Therapy
  • The Psychology of Change: Motivation & Mindset
  • Meaning and Purpose: Eudaimonic Wellbeing
  • Positive Relationships
  • Mindfulness for Stress Management

This workshop is tailored to suit the organisation booking it and is delivered in-house. If you are a trainer/coach and want to use practices such as these, then you are welcome to join one of our open courses – the 2-day Positive Psychology Masterclass or the online Positive Psychology Foundations.

“Wasn’t sure what to expect but thought it was a really good day for both development of personal skills for managing mood, and also providing advice for patients.” GP

“It was lovely to have a day to focus on strengths and positive things rather than our usual focus on ‘what’s wrong’. I felt it was uplifting and useful both personally and professionally and I hope I can carry some of the positive attitude into my work.” GP
