  • 27 Jan 2012
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (EST)
  • Webinar


This webinar is for a wide variety of professionals who are interested in applying and integrating cutting-edge Positive Psychology interventions in their professional work. Dr. Rashid will present some nuanced and sophisticated applied strategies which build positive emotions, character strengths, positive relationship and meaning towards more fulfillment and satisfaction.  The webinar will also underscore that drawing attention to positive resources doesn't and shouldn't come at the cost of overlooking, minimizing or denying negative emotions and experiences which deserve equal attention. Rather the focus of the webinar will be using positive resources more effectively to encounter  challenges.
