Positive Psychology: A Therapeutic Approach for Adolescents & for Parents

May 25, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Learn the latest research and innovative therapies for helping autistic youth cope with mental health challenges.

DATE: Wed, May 25, 2022

TIME: 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM PDT


For Mental Health Awareness Month, we will be focusing on positive psychology for teens and parents in our May webcast.

Positive psychology is the study of what makes life most worth living. Therapy is a safe space to navigate challenges, build coping skills, and heal what hurts in order to live a more fulfilling life. Together we will talk about how we build strengths, practice optimism and gratitude, and learn how to promote an authentic life. Authenticity is when what we think, feel, do, and say are all in alignment; authenticity and a sense of fulfillment go hand in hand. In this webcast, we will explore how positive psychology can be used to benefit teens (of all abilities) as well as benefit parents who may be struggling with their own issues.

Topics covered in this session include:

  • Know Your Feelings: Defining Your Emotional Wants, Needs, & Desires
  • What You Think Shapes How You Feel: Let’s Talk About Mood
