Historically, the science of clinical psychology has focused on the treatment of mental illness. However, in the 1990s, psychologists began to study more deeply what actually makes us happy. They found that happiness is not the absence of depression or anxiety, but the cultivation of experiences that make life worth living. In this webinar, you will learn about the basic principles of positive psychology, foundational research in the field, and simple strategies you can apply to your everyday life to enhance feelings of well-being.
