WORKBOOK SEMINAR

This is the most comprehensive and detailed approach to discovering your strengths, passions, life mission, and more. This 7-week seminar is highly effective in educational settings, where students have the time and frame of mind to immerse themselves in the world of growth. In each weekly 90-minute session, the student is walked through a sophisticated, rigorous, and inspiring process of discovering his natural strengths, and he learns how to use his strengths to direct all major and minor future life decisions.

WORKBOOK WEBINAR

The webinar takes the the Workbook Seminar and brings it to the comforts of your own home, using the most advanced and up-to-date webinar technology (Zoom). It is taught over the course of seven, 60-minute sessions, on Sundays. The seven weeks of sessions include completing the assigned workbook and a variety of educational and instructional videos and readings. This webinar is ideal for college students or young professionals who do not have the time or convenience to attend the Workbook Seminar in person.

In addition to his role as Dean of Students, he is a Senior Lecturer, counselor, and personal advisor.

Beyond Machon Yaakov, he is a Career Discovery Coach, an author, a college professor, and a key program director for MEOR.


He holds a PsyD in Human and Organizational Psychology from Touro, a Masters Degree in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) from the University of Pennsylvania (where he learned under the founder of the field of Positive Psychology, Dr. Martin E.
