AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement and mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 14 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

What does it take to be truly happy? Until recently, mental health professionals have focused almost exclusively on treating psychopathology - helping people move from states of unusual distress to ordinary levels of well-being. The objective of this course is to offer clinicians updated information on the growing field of positive psychology and its clinical applications. Positive psychology seeks to identify through empirical research what makes people happy and resilient. Participants will gain an understanding of the core findings of the science of happiness and its application in psychotherapy. They will learn specific interventions that have been shown to increase well-being. Interactive learning formats, such as questions and answer sessions, panel presentations, case-based discussions, and didactic lectures will engage the learners and help them to develop new strategies that they can apply in clinical practice.
