Positive Psychology and Psychotherapy

by Martin Seligman
Martin Seligman shows how to apply the principles of positive psychology to the practice of psychotherapy.


Positive Psychology and Psychotherapy
In this landmark interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Seligman emphasizes that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, as "psychology as usual" might contend. Rather, happiness derives from an execution of our signature strengths. Seligman demonstrates a new set of rigorously tested interventions that lastingly increase happiness while decreasing depression.

Dr. Seligman discusses his predecessors Maslow, Rogers, and Beck, what he took from them, and what he changed. He proposes new questions like, "What was the best experience you ever had?" And he explains how easy, enormously fun and important techniques can be grafted on to therapy with all clients to help them live a more engaged, meaningful, and thus happier life.

After watching this lively, personally revealing conversation, you'll be eager to apply these innovative ideas to your psychotherapy practice!

"I was extremely impressed by Positive Psychology and Psychotherapy. I felt myself being effortlessly and intensely engaged with Seligman's authenticity and passion. Excellent!"
-- Vanna Schiralli MD, CCFP, FCFP, Assistant Professor, University of Toronto.

"A very practical, wise and balanced approach. Seligman masterfully demonstrates how to build on client strengths while not diminishing the need to attend to psychopathology. I've already watched it several times, and keep learning with each viewing,"
-- Richard Syrkiewicz, PhD Candidate in Clinical Psychology, Edith Cowan University, Australia

"Seligman, in his grinning and personable way, offers many useful tools to help you be even more effective with your clients. His positive psychology approach doesn’t detract but augments work you are already doing with positive emphasis that leads to more happiness, and life satisfaction...His openness and genuine desire to be helpful to others comes through as does his honesty and authenticity. I do recommend this DVD as a useful tool."
-- John D. Lentz D.Min, The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
