We Create Positive Psychology
This psychological perspective emphasises optimism, hope, hardiness, resilience, strengths and optimal development
People are most effectively motivated by the challenge to enhance their positive development and strive for optimal possibilities.
Positive psychology is broad in application (CR Snyder's Hope Theory and Humanist Psychology's Wellness Models) of more immediate relevance to the Dependable Strengths Articulation process are Constructivism and Narrative Psychology (subsections of Positive Psychology).
Dependable Strengths reinforces positive self-construction.
The Dependable Strengths Articulation Process actively engages participants in narrative psychology exploring and articulating their GOOD EXPERIENCES and stories in small groups which reinforce and clarify positive self-construction.
Studies have shown that participants of the Dependable Strengths workshops are likely to experience a change of locus of control from external to internal and will feel more able to influence their futures.
Participants are encouraged to depend on their clarified understanding of themselves and their strengths. The process is an ongoing, life long process of discovery.
