Got 24-Minutes a Week for Well-being?
In about 24-minutes a week, you can arm your youthlings with 8 vital life skills to increase their resilience and happiness. If you are a parent, this program will provide you the tools to better connect with your children, understand their predictable (or not-so predictable) behavior, teach them to effectively cope with challenges, deal with stress, anxiety, and negativity, and practice evidence-based methods to increase their happiness.
You will learn techniques based on cutting edge psychological research (with all academic guck translated!) to practically integrate skills of well-being into your life. GoStrengths! is based on a foundation of pragmatism, so you’ll get step-by-step methods to take action and increase the well-being of your family.
How does your Youthling deal with Problems?
Your daughter had her heart set on making the soccer team, but she missed the cut. Your son was the only one not invited to schoolmate’s party. Which option most relates to the way your child would explain this adversity?
a. My child would focus on their own inadequacies and insist everything goes wrong in their life.
b. My child would exaggerate the gravity of the problem and find it hard to put it in perspective.
c. My child would be disappointed, but understand the feelings were temporary.
The way your child explains challenges they face has a large impact on their ability to rise above the adversity. This skill known as resilience. Resilience is not reserved for those born lucky or for those raised in privileged environments. Resilience is a skill anyone can acquire with practice.
Anyone can learn Skills of Resilience?
Yes. Absolutely. Research reveals while genetic, biological factors, and life circumstance influence one’s resilience, it is not the biggest factor. The biggest reason one person is able to better overcome challenges than another is due to the difference in thinking styles. In fact,
In this community, you will learn about your thinking style and how your thoughts are the cornerstone to well-being. You will learn how what you think affects how you react in every situation. You will increase your emotional awareness and regulation which will help you effectively deal with problems and decrease the stress in your life.
By taking one of our well-being courses, you will provide youthlings with a life long tool which will serve them in every domain of their adult life. When they encounter problems at work, they will have skills to deal with them. When life throws a relationship curve ball at them, they will be able to overcome and even grow from their experience. And in the here and now, resilience skills can work to reduce and even prevent symptoms of depression and anxiety-two of the most common disorders in youth.
Beyond Surviving, Begin Thriving!
Martin Seligman, a pioneer in the field of positive psychology, once said, “The absence of mental disorder does not equate to mental health.” The focus on rooting on disease and disorder has created a myth that if there is nothing “wrong” with our youthlings, then things must be going “right.” This is just not the case.
In order to raise thriving, productive, and engaged youth, we must go beyond disease and help them cultivate habits of true happiness. Sound hokey? Think you don’t have time to teach your kids happiness because you need them to get good grades and be successful? No problem. Success and happiness go hand in hand. In fact…
Here are just a handful of scientifically researched benefits of happiness:
- Happier people earn more money over their lifetime
- Happier people are more productive and creative at work
- Happier people are better negotiators
- Happier people are more likely to get married
- Happier people enjoy better relationships and longer marriages
- Happier people cultivate more friendships
- Happier people are more pro-social or volunteer more
- Happier people cope better with stress and trauma
- Happier people have greater protection against heart disease and stroke
- Happier people live longer
It is possible for anyone to reap the benefits of a happier life, because happiness is a skill. GoStrengths! teaches parents, teachers, and youthlings this skill through evidence-based methods. You will find the path to greater purpose and deeper joy in your life. Join us on this journey of greater well-being and start implementing the 8 skills from day one.

How does it work?
We teach you, you teach the kids. Wait a sec… you’re thinking, hey, can’t I just let my kids sit through the course? Sure, but it’s not as effective. Here’s the most effective way to learn the skills: We teach you, you teach the kids. Learning the skills yourself will help you directly improve your relationships with your youthlings. Furthermore, you’ll create an environment of understanding and support as you will really “get” what it is they are going through. The 8 skills are effective tools to cope with challenges, increase self-confidence, improve relationships, set effective goals for the future, and increase hope, optimism, engagement and positivity in life – and that’s just scratching the surface!
