The Doing What Is Great: The Focus On the Positive You Workshop is designed for individuals who experience themselves as less valuable than they would like to feel; who devalue themselves and their accomplishments; who are “self-haters”; who are chronically finding fault with themselves; who characteristically compare themselves to other people and find themselves wanting; who feel generally inferior to others. They often experience discouragement and sadness as well; a sense of hopelessness about themselves and their prospects is often present.
The workshop consists of a series of four sessions and one follow-up session; these activities involve the participant in a variety of activities both within the sessions and as homework. The workshop activities are designed to restructure the participants thinking about her- or himself and to bring about behavioral change that leads in the direction of changed self-concept, enhanced feelings of self-worth, and a new behavioral repertoire to support the other changes.
