    • 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.
