“A really lovely way of coming to a well-organized understanding”

I think in order to grasp a real level of understanding and mastery of positive psychology, the sailboat metaphor (explained in this program) is a really lovely way of coming to a well-organized understanding. The way it’s organized, the way that you have put all of this together in this framework I think has been really well done.

Master a powerful metaphor

for coaching and teaching.

The Life Navigation Program© introduces a new, science-based method for understanding and applying positive psychology.

In comparing human functioning to a captain’s interaction with the different elements of a sailboat, this method:

  offers a ready-to-go method for applying positive psychology
  gives clients an intuitive way to share experiences
  creates a clear structure in the vast field of positive psychology
  provides hands-on tools to put this method into practice

This framework has helped to organize the field of positive psychology for me

I think this program is useful for practitioners who are working with “at-risk” people or folks who are trying to enhance personal development, but it can also be infused with psychotherapy, in working with people who are having mental health problems. This framework has helped to organize the field of positive psychology.

Michael Bloomquist, PhD, LP | Professor of Psychiatry

Minneapolis, USA

Mastering this framework has brought me added confidence

“This is fantastic! Over the years, I’ve felt that I was spending too much time preparing materials because there was so much to organize. I love this framework…not only is it helpful to the client, but mastering this has brought me added confidence that I’m covering the big picture in a balanced manner. The slide of the lighthouse shining on the boat just brought it all home for me. Thank you!”

I’m so impressed by the Life Navigation program. Like all of the PositivePsychology.com courses, the materials cover key psychological concepts in enough depth to satisfy and inform those with prior knowledge but are presented in a way that’s accessible and easy to digest for those new to the field. The mix of video, slides, and workbooks makes learning easy and fun, and the tools and resources are perfect for use with coaching and workplace clients.

Our honest disclaimer.

Hi, Hugo here. To promote good practice, I want to ask you to please use this training package within the boundaries of your professional expertise. For instance, if you are a certified clinician, you can use the program within your field of expertise (clinical psychology). If you are a school teacher, you can use the tools in the classroom, but it would not be advisable to use the tools to treat clinical populations.

This program is an educational tool. While it includes science-based training templates that provide you with the knowledge and tools you can use to give your own workshops and improve your practice, I still recommend you to attain therapy or coaching certification before you call yourself an official coach or practitioner and before you see any coachees, clients, or patients. However, if you are not already a licensed practitioner, this masterclass will still provide you with all the tools you need to sharpen your professional skills and provide an invaluable starting point for designing your own workshops and training.
