In the last decade, positive psychology has emerged as a rigorously examined academic discipline. Whereas traditional psychology focuses on disorder and dysfunction, positive psychology seeks to understand life satisfaction, meaning and overall wellbeing. Positive psychology research proves empirically what Judaism has taught for thousands of years – that factors like gratitude, family cohesion and optimism are among the most significant drivers of happiness, resilience and wellbeing.
I collaborate on diverse projects with schools, community institutions, companies and organizations. My work relies on extensive experience in both formal and informal education, leadership development, and individual and communal empowerment.
