Doctor Maria Sirois
Author and Inspirational Speaker
Dr Maria Sirois is a licensed clinical psychologist who has worked in the fields of wellness and positive psychology for twenty years. Maria is particularly known for her work with building resilience, particularly with those facing serious illness or who those who are “seeking strength, uplift and meaning while wrestling with the harshness of life”.
You can watch her mesmeric delivery in this Ted X talk.
Positive Psychology research over the last two decades has done much to increase our knowledge of practical tools/perspectives that elevate optimism, wellbeing, engagement and happiness at work and improved relationships. Yet, some of its most interesting concepts require us to look beyond the positive into the realm of paradox in order to answer compelling questions: What is the place of happiness in a dark time? What is hope when reality is excruciating? Why does authenticity sometimes lead to incongruence in terms of our values or to disconnection with one’s self and with others? Our exploration of these questions will provide us an opportunity to both become more grounded in core principles/practices of positive psychology while elevating understanding to new levels, ones in which we find more ease resting in paradox as we continue to grow.
