    Cultivating Happiness: Beginning a Personal Practice

    Positive Psychology Houston is a psychologist-owned organization that uses research findings from the field of Positive Psychology to help Houstonians learn to cultivate inner peace, perspective and happiness.

    Cultivating Happiness is a six-week group focused on teaching the skills that happy
    people employ. Program content, grounded in recently published research, includes the
    following topics:

    • What is happiness?
    • What are the myths about happiness?
    • Banishing self-focused negativity and social comparison
    • Practicing acts of kindness
    • Savoring life’s joys
    • Mindfulness
    • Self-care and creating a personal plan for lasting happiness

    Groups meet weekly for 1.5 hours for six weeks. In each session, group members learn about the behaviors, attitudes and skills that characterize happy people. Further, they participate in exercises for clarifying and developing personal roadmaps for cultivating happiness. Between-session assignments are provided to help group members integrate what they are learning into daily life. Groups are led by a licensed psychologist: Suzanne Mouton-Odum, Ph.D. and the cost is $400.00 for the 6 week group.
