The Life Navigation© Box Set

(11 customer reviews)

If you’re here, you probably know that positive psychology can help your clients create lives worth living.

But researching the field and extracting it into meaningful learning and practical applications is difficult and time-consuming, reducing hours you could spend helping clients. Meanwhile, most study programs take years and cost more than the average annual salary.

The Life Navigation© Box Set is a positive psychology certification program with the same rigorous standards as any science-based curriculum, designed by a former University professor. Delivered to your doorstep in one stunning box.

    I’m so impressed by the Life Navigation program. Like all of the courses, the materials cover key psychological concepts in enough depth to satisfy and inform those with prior knowledge but are presented in a way that’s accessible and easy to digest for those new to the field. The mix of video, slides, and workbooks makes learning easy and fun, and the tools and resources are perfect for use with coaching and workplace clients.

  2. Amy Sinacola

    The resources you provide are invaluable. There is so much research-based information explained in a way that is easy to understand and translate to clients. I use the resources in one-to-one coaching sessions, use the activities to support my lecturing, and am looking forward to delivering my first masterclass this year. This has saved me lots of time in doing my own research, and the members area is easy to use and navigate.

  3. Denise Schaub

    This is fantastic! Over the years, I’ve felt that I was spending too much time preparing materials because there was so much to organize. I love this framework…not only is it helpful to the client, but mastering this has brought me added confidence that I’m covering the big picture in a balanced manner. The slide of the lighthouse shining on the boat just brought it all home for me. Thank you!

    The Life Navigation program is just brilliant! The courses are very thorough with easy-to-digest video lessons alongside professionally developed supporting materials and resources, which saves me time and money in my mentoring practice. is my trusted source for my own professional development in the discipline as well as for tools and resources to use with my clients.

  5. Dr. Leonard Read Sulik, M.D.

    I think in order to grasp a real level of understanding and mastery of positive psychology, the sailboat metaphor (explained in this program) is a really lovely way of coming to a well-organized understanding. The way it’s organized, the way that you have put all of this together in this framework I think has been really well done.

  6. Michael Bloomquist, Ph.D., LP

    I think this program is useful for practitioners who are working with “at-risk” people or folks who are trying to enhance personal development, but it can also be infused with psychotherapy, in working with people who are having mental health problems. This framework has helped to organize the field of positive psychology.

  7. Kristi Seymor, LPC, MBA

    I’m a licensed clinical therapist in Alaska, and I have been practicing for about 20 years. I have been using the tools for the last three years, and I can’t tell you how much I love them. They have added so much value to my practice. I recently got The Life Navigation© Box Set and could not be happier with the quality. Everything is outstanding. I cannot say enough about my happiness with

  8. Katie Miley, Psy. D

    The Life Navigation© Box Set is a clever way to contain so much material in a clean-looking package that’s easy to display. I’m proud to have the logo to display in person or on my bookshelf behind me for virtual presentations-it adds credibility. While I do most of my work virtually with digital files, it’s so helpful to have books and materials at my fingertips, and so much easier to organize presentations and have props for discussions that are accessible. I downloaded copies of the materials from the Life Navigation© training online, but I like the convenience of flipping through the box and cards to organize and customize materials for presentations. I hope you find the box set an asset for your practice too.

  9. Lynndal Daniels, MA, LMFT, BC-TMH, BCC

    The Life Navigation© program has been one of the most useful and educational training that I’ve ever had the pleasure of taking. The use of The Sailboat Metaphor© has been extremely helpful in my work with clients.  One thing that stood out to me was ‘The Investment Model of Commitment’ in the Positive Relationships© Masterclass. That notion in and of itself has been so useful in my work that the entire program cost was paid for multiple times over!

  10. Ingrid Ulbrich

    The Life Navigation© program offered me valuable insights and information on how I can better help my clients. As a mindset coach, I have already implemented some of the tools used, and they have been received by my clients with such enthusiasm; it’s like a light bulb went off in their heads. I’m so excited about the tangible hardcopy (The Life Navigation© Box Set) that is now available. I previously had online access only, and many times I wished I had something to hold on to. And now I do! If you’re anything like me, sometimes things get lost and scattered, so I definitely appreciate having these hands-on resources available. This program is definitely better than I ever could imagine. Thank you.

  11. Dr. Megan Guenther

    All the materials are high quality, and I particularly appreciate the quality and the design of the handbooks. They are attractive enough to have on my desk for pulling out for a quick refresher between client sessions when I am writing notes, planning treatment, and preparing for my next sessions. As a psychologist with over 15 years of experience in the field, it is not very often that I come across a continuing education opportunity that provides a comprehensive framework that is truly applicable to my practice and is a solid investment for not only improving my practice and my business but also truly enhancing the way I am able to meet the needs of my clients.
