1 Tel Aviv University The Bob Shapell School of Social Work MA in Coping with Stress, Crisis and Trauma Applied Positive Psychology Therapy (APPT) Semester I, Wednesday, 12:15-13:45 Instructor: Prof. Tammie Ronen address: Office: Room 206 Office hours: Monday, 10:00-12:00 (by appointment) Telephone : Course Overview and Objectives For decades, therapists focused almost exclusively on mental illness, adopting a disease-based model of client functioning that almost completely overlooked individual strengths, virtues, and areas of well-being, focusing instead upon pathology, weaknesses, and deficits. During the last decade, a major shift occurred from focusing on pathological characteristics to focusing on individual differences and diversity in coping with such disordered responses. This shift reflects the human wish to lead more productive and fulfilling lives, and to identify and nurture talents. Positive psychology is the subjective level that values subjective experiences and studies the field of subjective well being, contentment, and satisfaction, hope and optimism, flow and happiness. It is the scientific study of ordinary human strengths and virtues.

2 Research points to the role of self control skills as well as social relationship as major sources of happiness and well beings for most human beings. The course will focus on the main theory in the area of positive psychology, flow, happiness and subjective well being. After a short description of the basic theoretical model, the course will focus on how these theoretical principles can be successfully translated into specific intervention techniques, to empower people, increase happiness and flow. Three major assumptions will be emphasized as guiding the application of positive psychology principles in developing programs for helping people change: 1. The long range goals of most human beings are to feel good and to be satisfied. 2. Failures to materialize these goals are the result of lack of skills or knowledge 3. The goal of therapy is not to "cure" clients from their pathologies, but to train them in skills that would enable them to achieve psychological well being. The course will focus on techniques for increasing happiness in general, and a unique intervention based on positive psychology principles to decrease aggression among children and adolescents.
