Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get additional help using the VIA in various settings?

In addition to perusing both the VIA website and our YouTube channel, we recommend taking a look at our popular workshops that offer a deep dive into understanding and applying character strengths, namely our online VIA courses.  VIA is currently developing an array of additional workshops to help educate practitioners and enhance their armamentarium of tools and practices for helping others. Be sure to subscribe to the VIA Blog which hosts a wide range of professionals sharing their applications. Ryan Niemiec’s Psychology Today blog, entitled What Matters Most?, offers stories, examples, research, best practices, and core concepts for understanding, exploring, and applying character strengths.
