In Session Three, clients learn about the Aristotelian concept of practical wisdom, that is, the adaptive use of strengths to be used to live a good, meaningful, and virtuous life. These skills teach us how to adaptively apply signature strengths in a balanced way to solve problems. The central positive psychotherapy practice covered in this session is Know-How of Strengths. The chapter provides a list of readings, videos, and websites that relate to practical wisdom and offers three different worksheets to practice the concepts learned in the chapter. The chapter also includes a real-life case study to illustrate the use of practical wisdom.
