In this 90-minute webinar, participants will learn three positive psychology concepts and how they can be applied to enhance one’s well-being, resilience, and performance when working with Service members and Veterans. The session will describe the concepts of optimism, gratitude, and active constructive responding. It will review the empirical background on how all three concepts relate to psychological well-being, resilience, performance, and strong relationships. Participants will leave with actionable strategies to apply each concept in their personal and professional life.
Dr. Paoletti also recorded a supplementary Q&A answering several questions we weren't able to cover during the main presentation. This Q&A is available to watch by clicking here.

- Evaluate the background of positive psychology and the empirical support behind the concepts of optimism, gratitude and active constructive responding.
- Formulate coaching questions to develop a more optimistic mindset in oneself and others.
- Develop a gratitude practice to buffer against stress and increase well-being.
