Traditional psychology and counseling approaches are problem-focused. Too many teens are defined by their problems, and need help realizing that they are much more than their problems. This presentation will discuss the application and outcomes of positive psychology interventions used with troubled teens in a residential treatment settings for adolescents with extensive trauma histories. Interventions are presented with a goal to empower individuals to look beyond past trauma, abuse, and neglect, to identify and use their strengths to overcome their most difficult struggles.
