IGNITING CHARACTER STRENGTHS: From Awareness to Embodied Practice in 30 Days
July 19, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0
In July 2019, I co-presented a poster session with my colleague Dr. Karen S. Whelan-Berry at the 6th World Congress on Positive Psychology in Melbourne, Australia. Our initial study set out to answer the question: How does one build an embodied character strengths practice? We know that engaging character strengths optimally can lead to personal and professional transformations. Yet, a gap exists between having a basic awareness of strengths and having a meaningful and effective practice of strengths. In our initial study, we found that a daily guided practice for 30 days (using my book as a guide) plus facilitated connection time with others on the same journey, reflecting on and exploring one’s strengths, and hearing about other people’s journeys were most instrumental in filling that gap. More to come!
