USEFUL WEBSITES

Authentic Happiness
This is the web site for the University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center, where Dr. Martin Seligman is the director. Although the center offers a number of happiness-related questionnaires that you can take online, I particularly recommend the VIA Signature Strengths survey.

Joan Borysenko of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
This web page provides more information and resources about working the mind-body connection for greater mental and physical health.

Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine
The institute runs excellent introductory training about mind-body approaches for clinicians, training for people wishing to create programs similar to the Benson-Henry Institute, and groups for people struggling with conditions that can be greatly helped with mind-body approaches-infertility, menopause, life-threatening illness, and more.
