Published: 2005-12-02 | ISBN: 0471213519 | PDF | 368 pages | 3 MB


Endorsed by Christopher Peterson of the University of Michigan and taught in Marty Seligman’s Masters in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Program at the University of Pennsylvania, this book teaches a simple, step-by-step method for putting the fields of well-being and positive psychology into practice. It is a "one-stop shopping" manual with everything you need in one book and with one approach.
This approach to greater happiness, meaning, and success is “evidence-based” and empirically validated. It has been successfully tested in three randomized controlled trials, including two NIH-grant funded trials conducted by James R. Rodrigue and his colleagues at Beth Israel and Harvard Medical Centers in Boston.
Quality of Life Therapy also known as Quality of Life Therapy and Coaching or QOLTC is designed for use by therapists, coaches, organizational change-agents/consultants, and all professionals who work to improve peoples' well-being. Many laypersons and clients have found the book useful as well.
This book explains the "Sweet 16" Recipe for Joy and Success, along with validated interventions for each:
1. Basic Needs or Wealths: Health, Money, Goals-and-Values/Spiritual Life, Self-Esteem
2. Relationships: Love, Friends, Relatives, and Children
3. Occupations-Avocations: Work and Retirement Pursuits, Play, Helping-Service, Learning, Creativity
4. Surroundings: Home, Neighborhood, Community
