Webinar Description:
The goal of this training is to provide an introduction to the art and science of positive psychology and its application to strengths-based practice with People with IDD/DD.

Most of our daily thoughts and actions have the end goal of achieving, maintaining or salvaging our happiness. Recent advances in scientific research may be able to help, with a number of studies suggesting that people have the power to increase happiness through intentional activities. The new science of positive psychology seeks to move toward happiness and well-being, not simply away from suffering. We are shifting focus from what's wrong to what's strong. This talk will highlight research and interventions for clinicians and supervisors to use with those they help and in their own life. Highlighted will be evidence-based clinical interventions designed to improve well-being while reducing negative emotions and behaviors.
