What’s Your Purpose? A Positive Psychology Based Intervention
“Why am I here?” “What’s the meaning of life?” “Who am I, really?”
These questions often plague people, leaving them anxious and even depressed. Do these questions haunt you or clients? Are these questions making your clients feel stuck and apathetic? Positive psychology offers a new answer. What if we’ve been going about purpose all wrong? What if our language has been causing anxiety rather than supporting well-being in purpose? This session by Carin Rockind, MAPP, will teach you a new way to approach life’s greatest question. In recent years, purpose has become a topic of interest in the media, in business, and in education. Research indicates that people of every age are searching for purpose and that many people would prefer meaningful work to money. It’s no wonder since purpose has been found to correlate with increased life satisfaction, improved physical and mental health, higher self-esteem, and greater resilience to obstacles.
