Assignment 2 - wellbeing. Four wellbeing exercises. Gary Craig’s Emotion Freedom Therapy . A powerful stress reducing therapy, that is a combination of an energy therapy exposure therapy and positive psychology
Many people have found that the above exercises can have life changing consequences. In this assignment, however, we want to apply the exercises to matters of day-to-day concern rather than search for issues that may have a huge emotional investment. So with Emotional Freedom Therapy do not pick an area in which you feel highly vulnerable. With the Gratitude Visit don’t make it to the most contentious and difficult relationship you have ever had.
Because all of the exercises involve some degree of self-exploration it is possible that you could feel some discomfort while doing any of them. This is OK, and part of any learning journey. It is very unlikely that you will feel any noticeable on-going discomfort from any of these exercises. If you do, let one of your lecturers know as soon as possible OR speak to Patricia Aguilera Ramos (our DOSP trainee counsellor) or to Unitec Student Counselling Services.
In groups of three, have a go at doing these three assessments, and scoring them and putting them on the graph which is on page 2.
Discuss and have a look at the rest of the assignment.

"We believe that a psychology of positive human functioning will arise that achieves a scientific understanding and effective interventions to build thriving in individuals, families, and communities.”
