Description:

Behavior therapy is one of the most discussed schools of thought in psychology, it is tagged by Ernest Hilgard of Stanford University as the first force of psychology. However much discussed in text books, it is one of the most technical, strategy-driven, and scientific among the approaches, such that attempting to visualize the concepts read in textbooks is challenging for an undergraduate student. Thus, a demonstration of the modern behaviorism concepts would be helpful in visualizing how psychological concepts are applied in practice and in everyday life.

In this day and age when “perfection” is enshrined and the concept of positivity has been perverted into the process of avoiding pain at all costs, it is imperative to remind all of us, who are enslaved by skewed ideals of what true happiness means, that hardship is truly a great avenue for growth. When we accept pain and suffering as important and necessary aspects of our individual journeys rather than aberrations, then we stand to have a much better chance of finding meaning and significance in our lives. This seminar-workshop aspires to propagate the message of embracing pain as requisite to a full and meaningful life. Further, it aims to teach the participants the value of pain and suffering and how to develop a better and healthier perspective about their lives’ most trying situations. In so doing, they may be able to embrace all experiences, good and bad, with peace and curiosity and accept the path they are on while still aspiring to be the best versions of themselves

Description:

For years, the field of Psychology as a science has been doing a superb job in studying human abnormality, weaknesses and damages. A lot of breakthroughs have emerged in the field of clinical psychology or abnormal psychology in order to help people live functional lives again. In 1998, during the American Psychological Association’s annual convention, a challenge was made when Martin Seligman emphasized that more than this mentioned role of the field, psychology is also the study of human strengths and virtues. Treatment is not just fixing what is broken; it is also nurturing what is best in us (Seligman, 1998). These statements presented the other side of what the science of Psychology is/should be doing and shifted the paradigm for the field to also be concern with people’s well-being and optimal living. This session aims to give an introductory discussion regarding Positive Psychology and its role in boosting mental health. Specifically, its objectives for participants are: (a) to gain an understanding of what the field of Positive Psychology is about (b) to appreciate Positive Psychology’s basic concepts, theories and research findings in relation to mental health and Filipino experiences (c) to reflect on personal experiences and apply Positive Psychology’s practical tips to everyday living A lecture-workshop focusing on the fundamentals of Positive Psychology - positive emotions, values/virtues and character strengths plus the good life, the science of happiness, thriving communities - is the design of this learning session.

THE CHALLENGE OF THIS WORKSHOP IS TO EMPLOY MREBT, A TREATMENT PACKAGE THAT WILL MAKE USE OF AN ECLECTIC APPROACH TO EMPOWER STUDENTS’ ANXIETY ON PEER REJECTION AND BETRAYAL DUE TO IRRATIONAL THINKING AND BELIEFS.

THEY WILL BE ASSISTED IN RECOGNIZING, EVALUATING, AND RESTRUCTURING THEIR IRRATIONAL BELIEFS THROUGH DISPUTATION PROCESS. THEY WILL BE GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES TO CONTROL, STOP AND ELIMINATE THEIR RECURRING IRRATIONAL BELIEFS THROUGH THOUGHT STOPPING TECHNIQUE AND TO ASSIMILATE RELAXATION THROUGH DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING SO AS TO RELIEVE ANXIOUS FEELINGS. THEY WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO VIEW THE ANXIETY PROVOKING SITUATIONS TO NEW RATIONAL AND POSITIVE THINKING IN ORDER TO FORMULATE THEIR OWN REASSURING PERSONAL BELIEFS (RPB). REPETITIVE SELF-TALK OF THE STUDENTS’ RBP WILL SERVE AS RATIONAL AND POSITIVE COPING STATEMENTS TO COUNTERATTACK THEIR SELF-DEFEATING BELIEFS, AND TO GUIDE THEM ON HOW THEY SHOULD RESPOND REALISTICALLY AND POSITIVELY TO ANXIETY PROVOKING SITUATIONS. THE RPB IMAGERY WILL BE APPLIED BY HAVING A MENTAL PICTURE ON THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF THEIR EMOTIONS AND BEHAVIORS AS THEY REPEATEDLY EXPRESS THEIR RPB DURING ANXIETY PROVOKING SITUATIONS.
