What happens prior to a positive psychology approach?

After the initial discussion, a positive psychology approach can then be carried out. Please see our process below.

Our process

At HSR Psychology we ensure that we meet the needs of children and young people. To achieve this we ensure that any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work, is only carried out following an initial discussion.

An initial discussion allows us to understand the background and your expectations of our involvement. Having an initial discussion ensures any services we provide appropriately identify or address needs.

Our process for any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work is as follows:

Step 1: Contact us

We will usually be contacted by the child or young person, parent or carer, or another professional (eg education or health).

You can contact us or complete a referral

What happens during a positive psychology approach?

During a positive psychology approach, we will encourage the child, teen or young adult to think about what aspects of life they enjoy and how they can enhance and indulge in these experiences. To promote positive aspects of life, the individual may be asked to use methods like keeping a gratitude diary. A big focus of a positive psychology approach will be on the individual’s strengths, the HSR Psychology specialist may use tools like strength cards to help identify and apply these strengths. A positive psychology approach can be used in combination with other interventions and can be carried out in various settings.

What happens after a positive psychology approach?

After a positive psychology approach the individual will have learned to use effective strategies to change their perspective on life for the better. Following a positive psychology approach it may be useful to go forward with follow up sessions, if required. Outcomes from a positive psychology approach can be provided through either a feedback session, or a short report written by us if required. 

Does a positive psychology approach come with a report?

We will always recommend a HSR Psychology report following an intervention.Our reports include what took place and how this affected the young person. As well as this, there is a summary of recommendations for the future. These reports are available after a positive psychology approach highlighting strategies for boosting optimism. Reasons for requesting a positive psychology approach vary, and if a written report is not deemed necessary then feedback can be provided during a conversation with a brief summary. Find out more about our reports.
