Positive Counseling Theory & Practice
Spring 2015 - Online Course
Instructor: Dr. Colleen Georges
Course Description: The field of psychology was born out of a desire to study the human condition, both our challenges and triumphs. However, traditional psychological research and practice has focused largely on diagnosing and treating human’s limitations, with less attention paid to our strengths. Positive Counseling Theory & Practice will provide an in-depth discussion of Positive Psychology, a field that helps practitioners transition from trying to undo the worst things in life to trying to build the best things in life. In this course we will cover the theory and research of Positive Psychology, as well as how to conduct positive assessment, diagnosis, and counseling interventions. The course incorporates in and out of the classroom activities intended to engage and instruct counselors in using character strengths such as optimism, gratitude, forgiveness, generosity, and others to promote enhanced well-being and happiness in family, school, work, and community settings.
