In the past several years Genny has developed an interest in Positive Psychology, the scientific study of what makes life worth living. The field of psychology has largely neglected the positive aspects of human functioning over the last one hundred and fifty years and has therefore left a void that many have longed to fill. That's where positive psychology comes in, with a focus on researching and understanding the best of human nature, i.e. optimal human functioning, and individuals, families, organizations, and relationships at their best.
Unlike the self-help movement, positive psychology endeavors to use research to support its hypotheses about what makes people happy and the practices that the happiest people have in their lives. Positive psychology aims to help individuals focus on peak performance at work, successful, healthy relationships with others, and strengths-based living in all aspects of one's life.
Genny provides seminars and presentations on a variety of topics to corporate, community and civic organizations, as well as to churches, annual events and conferences.
