Using a Mindful Practice to Build Positive Identity with Patrice Tabor, Jerald Forster, & Kate Duttro

This session will introduce you to a practice to help you articulate a more positive self-identity and overcome mental negativity. You will be guided through a series of activities such as:

  • Understanding the benefit of, and method for, focusing on positive moments.
  • Finding your own words for strengths that are personally meaningful.
  • Articulating a Strengths-focused Identity.
  • Experiencing a Strengths-focused dialog, an interpersonal tool for supporting development of a positive, Strengths-focused Identity.

This workshop will also give you new ideas about how to facilitate a similar introspective process with clients.

Coaches who become practitioners of these processes may use the Strengths-focused Identity website as a resource for helping clients to build a positive identity.
