Evening with Yannick


Event Details

In our society, a lot of us are meeting what Abraham Maslow called our “basic needs” and are now looking to move further up the pyramid towards self-actualisation. Not only do we want our needs to be met, we want to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Martin Seligman, founder of Positive Psychology describes it as the ‘scientific study of optimal human functioning that aims to discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and communities to thrive.’

Often our coachees are looking to feel better about certain aspects of their lives this can be anything from relationships, to finding meaning, better health or self-growth. Positive psychology enables us to get into the heart of the matter and offers coaches a broad variety of theories, tools and interventions to assist clients on their journey towards greater wellbeing.

Join us for this lecture with Yannick Jacob, formerly Programme Leader of University of East London’s MSc Coaching Psychology.

This lecture is aimed at qualified and in-training coaches who are curious about what it takes to live a happier and more fulfilled life and what positive psychological science may contribute to the process.

You’ll find out how we as coaches may deal with clients who are “negative” in their thinking and learn some practical tools and interventions to apply to yourself as well as your clients.

Through a rich mix of theory and group discussion you will learn:

  • Why happiness is important
  • An introduction to the science of Positive Psychology
  • Theories of happiness & psychological wellbeing
  • Practical ways of integrating Positive Psychology with yourself and your clients

Continue your evening after the lecture at the bar with the Animas Team and Yannick himself. A great way to catch up with fellow students, your favourite trainers and mentors!
