As health practitioners, we are trained to focus on the negative. But many of the people we talk to could benefit from exploring positive emotions as well.

In addition to learning how to restructure and manage unpleasant emotions, we can also explore the ways they are generating positive emotions. Together we can explore what they are doing well, what skills and concepts they can tap into to enhance these, and – most importantly – how that positive emotion feels to them.

In this brief and practical webinar, we will discuss the importance of highlighting the positive emotions in clinical conversations, and explore some ways in which we can help people (and ourselves) enhance the experience of those emotions.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the importance of recognising positive emotions in clinical practice.
  • Feel confident about using techniques to enhance positive emotions.
