Would you like to shelve your 2019 New Year’s resolution and instead try a science-based approach to happiness and success?
Join us as we explore VIA character strengths, key building blocks to flourishing!
If you’re ready to put a pause on limitations and practice harnessing what’s best within you, you are going to love this program. Join two seasoned facilitators, author Jane S. Anderson and Dr. Karen S. Whelan-Berry, in early 2019 as they join forces to offer a unique, one-time-only learning experience designed to help you create an embodied VIA character strengths practice.
How You Will Benefit
Individuals over 18 who are either new to VIA character strengths or seasoned practitioners can benefit from a VIA character strengths practice. As a participant, you will:
- Discover a meaningful awareness of who you are and how you contribute in the world.
- Develop your character strengths fluency to acknowledge and amplify others.
- Engage your character strengths in balanced ways, to boost happiness and success.
- Practice managing overuse and underuse, potential sources of conflicts in relationships.
- Use a lens of character strengths to view yourself and others kindly and accurately.
- Apply character strengths to daily routines, challenges, and goals.
- Prepare to take your practice forward.
How We’ll Work Together
Join us in this intensive 6-week course, where you’ll be exposed to many facets of character strengths in a condensed time frame. You’ll also answer the important questions: how does a daily character strengths practice impact your happiness and success, self-compassion, and engagement with character strengths?
You’ll receive your own copy of the book 30 Days of Character Strengths: A Guided Practice to Ignite Your Best, a resource endorsed by positive psychology experts like Tal Ben-Shahar, Ryan M. Niemiec, and Margarita Tarragona. This workbook, which includes daily activities, examples, and reflection prompts, will guide your daily practice.
We’ll also be working together in small groups beginning in late January to mid-February 2019, meeting either in person or online six times in weekly sessions of 1.5 hours. This will be your opportunity to check in and receive bonus content. The introductory fee for this workshop is $45, which includes your copy of 30 Days of Character Strengths: A Guided Practice to Ignite Your Best.
Our work is evidence-based, so we’ll gather pre- and post- workshop survey data and feedback from participants. We’ll also share a summary of what we learned. This program is available to a limited number of people, so remember, when opportunity knocks, open the door! To register, contact one of the program leaders.
