Xtraordinary Women in Business Networking Session - Somerset WestUsing the new science of Positive Psychology to maximise your potential for fulfilment and success
Positive Psychology is a new scientific branch of Psychology which is based on the realisation that traditional Psychology has until now overemphasized the exploration of human disorders and weaknesses. Instead of aiming to relieve human suffering, Positive Psychologists now study how we can get the most out of our lives: How can we develop positive emotions, character strengths and institutions in order to allow people to thrive and flourish?
The aim of this talk is to help you apply the findings of Positive Psychology to transform yourself, your business and your community.
"We can live out the vision that life and work can be about building what is best and highest, not just about correcting weaknesses"
Join Xtraordinary Women and Manuela Glasbrenner for this event through which you will:
- Understand the principles of Positive Psychology.
- Learn why “bad news” affect us disproportionately compared to “good news” and what we can do to reprogram ourselves.
- Get insight into what recent studies reveal about human strengths and strategies of people who achieve emotional fulfilment and psychological well-being.
- Find out how you can recognise, grow and use your unique strengths.
- Learn how to use Positive Psychology as a tool to achieve positive change and to realise your potential for authentic happiness.About our guest speaker
Manuela Glasbrenner grew up in Germany and holds a degree in Psychology from the University of Mannheim. She has worked in a German research institute, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to compare the brain functions of psychiatric patients with those of psychologically healthy people. She wrote her thesis in this intersection of Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology and further co-authored a scientific study that has been published in the international ‘Journal of Affective Disorders’. She set foot on the African continent when she did an internship in Namibia in 2007 working with juvenile delinquents with deficits in their personal and social development.
After moving to the Cape in 2010, Manuela followed her passion for people development and positive change: she uses Positive Psychology in her work as a coach (www.metathoughts.net
