In this workshop, we will explore the emerging science of wellbeing and look at strategies for improving the quality our lives so that we are not just surviving but also thriving. In keeping with the theme of “Self” we will explore positive identity by examining the strengths and resources that have helped us manage the complexities of our personal and professional lives. We will identify personal roadmaps for increasing wellbeing through identifying what we value most, through identifying and activating strengths in ourselves and those around us, and through increasing positive experiences in our lives. The workshop will be heavily experiential and interactive including writing, art making, and small group and larger group exercises.
