Session Eight expands the concept of gratitude—which was first introduced in Session One in the form of the Gratitude Journal. Session Eight facilitates the client recalling and writing to someone who is alive now and who in the past did something positive but who the client has never fully thanked. The positive psychotherapy practices covered in this session are the Gratitude Letter and Gratitude Visit. The chapter provides a list of readings, videos, and websites that relate to gratitude and offers a worksheet to practice the concepts learned in the chapter. The chapter also includes a real-life case study that illustrates how to practice gratitude.
