Rabbi Zelig Pliskin’s Torah Perspective on Positive Psychology
David Ritchie, MBA
What is Positive Psychology?
In the past 20 years the Psychology community has discovered the “new” science of Positive Psychology. This new field started with a simple question that was not asked previously by Psychiatrist or Psychologists: “What can be done to help people be happier and more successful?” Traditionally Psychiatrist and Psychotherapists have been treating mental illnesses. It was only addressing the issue of how to help sick people return to normal. Once the patient was functional there was no reason to continue treatment. Positive Psychology suggests that we focus on helping normal people find ways to improve their lives, accomplish more and fulfill more of their potential. Today Positive Psychology is being used by professional coaches to help their clients achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives, lives filled with more success and happiness.
Torah Positive Psychology
The wisdom of the new science of Positive Psychology has long been part of Torah wisdom. Rabbi Zelig Pliskin has written 26 books based on a Torah perspective on how we can improve our quality of our life and be more effective and happy. His books integrate the Torah Wisdom and the new research in Positive Psychology. Rabbi Zelig Pliskin is a Faculty member of the Refuah Institute where he teaches Positive Psychology as part of the Refuah Institute Professional Coach training program.
Coaching with Torah Positive Psychology
Refuah trained coaches utilize Positive Psychology as a tool as part of their coaching. This enables Refuah coaches to help successful people become much more successful, increase happiness and well as achieve more meaningful goals. A story shared by one Refuah trained coach in a supervised practicum is an example of the power positive psychology as used in coaching. David, a successful salesman approached a Refuah trained coach, because he felt stagnant. The coach was successful in helping David discover that he really wanted to use his exceptional skill as a salesman to market a product that was meaningful to him and provided real added value to his customers.With the help of his coach he explored different products until he found a great opportunity to sell something he really believed in and that could make him a living. David discovered that he was now more energized and excited, which led him to make even more money than before. When David reviewed what he had achieved with his coach he also realized that he felt much better about himself, with increased self-esteem and happiness.
