This course provides an overview of the biopsychosocial theories and evidence based research and practices associated with the emerging fields of positive psychology, happiness, positive health, and well-being. This course builds upon the COUN 555 course by focusing on the most recent evidence based and culturally competent practices in Positive Psychology with diverse and clinically underserved populations. Students will be exposed to the public mental health needs and culturally informed practices including native or indigenous healing practices in underserved and vulnerable populations both here in the United States and abroad. The continuum of evidence based interventions from health and wellness to chronic mental health issues and psychopathology will be addressed. This course will include a laboratory experience where positive psychology techniques and skills are practiced.
