Dare to be Happy: The Power of Positive Being
Human beings desire to
be happy. Most of our daily thoughts and actions have the end goal
of achieving, maintaining, or salvaging our happiness. Yeta formula
offering a consistent, reliable path toward their realization remains
elusive.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. This will be a
dynamic experiential workshop based on the latest research on positive
interventions and will use traditional psychodramatic techniques employed
in new ways to help develop such traits as gratitude, resilience,
forgiveness and hope.
