201 Positive Psychology Applications

Promoting Well-Being in Individuals and Communities

Fredrike Bannink (Author)

Overview | Contents

Helping clients focus on well-being and optimal functioning in many areas of life.

201 Positive Psychology Applications is organized along the five elements of the well-being theory of Martin Seligman, one of its founders. These elements are essential to leading pleasant, engaging, and meaningful lives, with positive relationships and accomplishment. This book describes these elements along with 201 applications to enable clients to live richer lives.

Fredrike Bannink, a master at presenting big ideas in manageable parts, offers readers easy-to-implement applications to turn the "what" of positive psychology into the "how." From humor to self-compassion, and from gratitude to reflecting on how people wish to be remembered, clinicians will find all they need to maximize their clients' life experiences.

“Offers so many positive ideas, concepts, and applications that readers will soon find themselves in a positive mindset. . . . I especially appreciated all the results of the studies in this book. It is powerful for us as people and therapists to know that new ways of thinking are empirically validated. . . . I recommend this book as a resource of inspiration to revive positive emotions and mindset.” — The Milton H. Erickson Newsletter

“This book is an especially helpful toolbox addition for people who suffer from depression. . . . Although we all have weaknesses and limitations. . . this book does not dwell on those things and instead operates in a more positive framework of what is working well. Changing the focus gives clients and therapists a sense of hope by highlighting things that are already going well while in the process of changing for the better.” — Psych Central
