Positive Psychology Coaching How to support client’s flourishing in a coaching setting
- Why positive psychology for coaching?
- Themes, topics and interventions of an exemplary positive psychology coaching process
- Emotions, emotion differentiation and the role of positive emotions
- Strengthening strengths
- Psychological basic needs
- Motivational continuum
- Dealing with Stress
- Helping clients flourish
The workshop focuses on 1:1 coaching (both life coaching and business coaching)
Participants will be able to integrate concepts of of positive psychology into their practice of coaching. In this workshop, I would like to illustrate the course of an exemplary coaching process which is informed by positive psychology. Several major research areas of (positive) psychology will be highlighted in their application to coaching, for example emotions, strengths, psychological basic needs, motivation and dealing with stress and setbacks through self-compassion. Participants will get both the opportunity of first-hand experiencing interventions and (as time allows) watching demonstrations.
Participants should have some training and/ or experience in coaching. This workshop does not cover basic coaching competencies but builds on them in order to integrate concepts of positive psychology into their practice of coaching.
