Tuesday lunch webinar on How to Add Positive Psychology to Your Practice

Colleagues,

A free webinar on How to Add Positive Psychology to Your Practice in therapy or coaching  will take place this Tuesday at 1pm EST; to register go to:  https://cc.readytalk.com/cc/s/registrations/new?cid=y3sm199wzboi .

Participants will learn how to conduct Quality of Life Therapy and how to use  the Quality of Life Inventory or QOLI.

These approaches are featured in the upcoming John Wiley & Sons book, The Handbook of Positive Clinical Psychology, edited by Alex Wood and Judith Johnson, as one of the very few comprehensive and evidence-based approaches to Positive Psychology [aka Well-Being] Intervention and Assessment in the world.
