Southlake, TX (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Building upon its Mindset for Success life coach training model, which promotes health, wealth and well-being by rewiring the brain and thought patterns, The Gardner Institute, http://www.gardnerinstitute.com, shared the latest research findings about positive psychology at a special presentation October 11 at Timarron Country Club. Lead by Gail Hartin, LMSW, ACC, and Martha Darwin, ACC, who are both Mindset for Success life coaches and certified by the International Coach Federation, they discussed new positive psychology methods and applications presented by Dr. Martin Seligman at this year’s Second World Congress on Positive Psychology in Philadelphia.
According to Dr. Jayne Gardner, founder of The Gardner Institute and certified life coach, Dr. Seligman is considered to be the father of positive psychology and his expanded definition is important to both life coaches and students.
"The research is important because it provides executive coaches with new ideas and techniques they can use to help clients, and some idea of the role and value of this field in a coaching practice," explains Dr. Gardner. "Those who are not coaches will benefit from learning more about what research has revealed about the brain and positivity, and how that could transform their lives."
The Second World Congress on Positive Psychology brought in world-renowned experts who interacted with attendees focused on studying what is best in life and how to create more of it through positive psychology, which practices positive emotions, strengths and the qualities that make people, businesses and communities prosper. The leading-edge research findings in positive psychology can be applied to a variety of fields from business to education to medicine.
Attendees included researchers, students, clinicians, educators, business owners, coaches, medical experts, consultants and more who all gathered information about:
- Strengths Interventions
- New directions in Positive Psychology
- Importance of Forgiveness
- Importance of Mindfulness
- Importance of Love
- Humanities Education
- Methods to Achieve Happiness
- New Definition of Positive Psychology
