Positive Psychology

Imagine that you are a high school counselor. You want to introduce a program that enables students to take the VIA youth survey, which is a version of the strengths survey designed specifically for children between the ages of 10 and 17. Students will learn about their individual strengths and how they can apply them in areas of their lives (e.g., social relationships, cases of bullying, life challenges, peer groups, education, family relationships, or future career directions).

You need to convince the school administration of the value of the new strengths program that you want to adopt. Develop a PowerPoint presentation to deliver to the school administration. Be sure that it includes the following:

Introduce positive psychology standards and findings of the importance of character strengths.
Explain the VIA survey. Include how it was created and what strengths it assesses.
Discuss how the VIA survey has been adapted for adolescents including those who identify as LGBTQ.
Do character strengths apply to those who have a different background and/or culture from the heteronormative White male? How do character strengths and virtues apply to those who identify as LGBTQ? Do the same signature strengths and virtues apply?
Evaluate the potential value of your program to address bullying issues.
Include specific examples of how strength knowledge might have a positive impact on specific aspects of students’ lives during adolescence.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists, and should cite material appropriately.
