Using the module readings, Argosy University online library
resources, and the Internet, research the positive psychology
model. Then, based on your research, do the following:
Select one of the featured elements of the positive psychology
model on which you will prepare an application for the APPA
Conference call for proposals as stated in the flier. Develop a
PowerPoint presentation as part of your application. Cover the
following points in your presentation: Discuss the foundational
information for positive psychology and the featured element or
concept of positive psychology on which you have chosen to focus.
Analyze and apply current research to support the efficacy of this
element or concept of positive psychology. Provide a minimum of
three scholarly references of research conducted within the past
five years. Argue the benefits of this element or concept in
contrast to two different techniques in general psychotherapy such
as cognitive restructuring (from cognitive/behavioral theory) or
dream analysis (from psychodynamic theory). Summarize several
significant factors that contribute to a positive outlook based on
current research. Analyze the potential advantages of this positive
outlook and what changes would need to be implemented to impact the
mental health field. Be sure to include a title slide and a slide
with a list of scholarly references. Remember to include detailed
speaker notes for each slide in your presentation. Develop a
1520-slide presentation in PowerPoint format. Each slide should
contain 75100 words of description and research. Apply APA
standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming
convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.ppt.
