Friday, January 22, 2021, 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM CDT
Category: WAFCA CE Training

 (Registration Opens December 17)


Workshop Description
We all aspire to high levels of happiness, yet this is a goal that evades many of us. What should we know if we too aim to become a happy—or a happier—person? In this workshop, Dr. Pelin Kesebir will answer this question, relying on the latest findings from well-being research. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have a better sense of where well-being lies and how it can be cultivated through small, daily activities.

Learning Objectives:

By taking part in this workshop, the participants will:

  • understand that well-being is a skill that can be developed,
  • learn about the different causes and correlates of well-being,
  • become familiar with the main qualities that make up a healthy mind,
  • get a better sense of what a healthy sense of self involves, and
  • learn about the importance of healthy social relationships to well-being.
