In this video presented at The Marin Center For Independent Living, you will learn how important it is to always accept the diagnosis but not the prognosis. You will learn about the research that shows how to cultivate happiness by learning to develop autonomy, an internal locus of control, self-efficacy, self-acceptance, authentic self-expression, openness and transparency, psychological flexibility, altruism, search for meaning and purpose, and strong social connections. The cultivation of these behaviors reprograms the brain, leading to a more fulfilled life.
