In Session One, clients learn about the clinical environment; this chapter also clarifies client and clinician roles and responsibilities. This session teaches how to start the ongoing practice of cultivating gratitude through journaling positive experiences and appreciating the impact of gratitude on well-being. The two positive psychotherapy practices covered in this session are Positive Introduction and Gratitude Journal. The chapter provides a list of readings, videos, and websites that relate to both the Positive Introduction and the Gratitude Journal and offers a worksheet to practice the concepts learned in the chapter. The chapter also includes two case studies to illustrate the use of Positive Introduction and the Gratitude Journal.
