Happiness is not just ‘nice to have’, happiness and positive emotions enhance our resilience, support our physical and emotional health, as well as allowing us to be creative and open to others. These core benefits of happiness are essential if we are to navigate challenges and thrive in all aspects of our lives and therapeutic work. This workshop will explore happiness and how to increase it across three core levels of the person: Cognitive, Emotional and Spiritual/Relational.

Course Content

Originating from the pioneering work of Carl Rogers and Harry Maslow, and further developed and understood by Martin Seligman, Barbara Fredrickson and Mihaly Csikszentmiyhalyi (amongst others) this workshop will utilize both an experiential and practical approach to explore happiness. Together Cognitive, Emotional and Spiritual/Relational aspects of happiness will be examined.
