HALOS (Healing After Loved Ones Suicide)

 HALOS (Healing After Loved Ones Suicide)

After moving to Florida in December, 2004, I located the Left Behind After Suicide (LBAS) Support Group and found immediate connectedness with others there.  I want to provide such an atmosphere to others as they work through their loss and grief.  HALOS brings that desire to fruition.  I attended peer facilitation of a suicide survivor support group training offered by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in 2006.I have received many gifts, blessings and miracles in my life.  Many I recognize now to a much greater degree since Natalie’s death.  There’s nothing good nor bad about that, it’s just how it is.  I now want to share all of my experiences and support others to bring forth their own healing, peace and serenity.

International Positive Psychology Association

International Positive Psychology Association

Positive psychology is an exciting new field of inquiry that has captured the interest of thousands of researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world. This burgeoning area of psychology focuses on the study and practice of the positive emotions, strengths, and virtues that make individuals and institutions thrive. Since its inception in 1998, the field has seen an investment of tens of millions of dollars in research, the founding of several scientific journals, the development of masters, and Ph.D. programs in key universities, and reports in major news outlets (including cover stories in Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News & World Report). In addition, the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) – in just four years of existence – has grown to thousands of members from 80 countries!

IPPA has several related missions. First, IPPA wants to further the science of positive psychology across the globe and to ensure that the field continues to rest on this science. Second, IPPA wants to work for the effective and responsible application of positive psychology in diverse areas such as organizational psychology, counseling and clinical psychology, business, health, education, and coaching. The third mission of the organization is to foster education and training in the field. In all of these endeavors, we want to create rigorous standards for positive psychology, so that the field always represents the very best levels of current knowledge.
