The Benefits of Professional Membership for Certified Positive Psychology Practitioners
You’ve finished your Positive Psychology course and are wondering what now?
Positive Psychology is an exciting field of study, research, and practice. But what happens once you’ve finished your Positive Psychology Practitioner training and want to share what you have learned with the world? And where has your Positive Psychology community gone now that you are no longer a student?
Belonging to a Positive Psychology student community can help us to build confidence. But it can also feel lonely once we’ve finished our training and that community disappears. This early excitement is typically replaced with a feeling of isolation after we qualify, and a sense of “Where do I go now?” can arise.
You may already belong to another professional community that supports you with your continuing professional development. But where is the Positive Psychology community that can provide a similar service to those practitioners who are starting in practice or integrating Positive Psychology into their existing workplace?
If you’re reading this, you’ve found one such community. If you’re passionate about practising Positive Psychology and want to increase your recognition and impact, the Professional Membership offered by the Positive Psychology Guild could help you do just that.
Let’s dive into some of the benefits of becoming a Professional Member of the Positive Psychology Guild and how this journey can contribute to your personal and professional development.
