Goal Setting/Hope isn’t just passively wishing and waiting for something to happen. Hope leads to the drive to set and pursue goals, take risks and initiate action. Hope fuels problem-solving and helps children develop personal strengths and social resources. Research shows that high-hope people are excited about the future and set goals for themselves.

In this episode, Dr. Reivich provides in-depth information on Goal Setting/Hope, one of the key ingredients of the Fishful Thinking Program, and how Fishful ThinkingSM gives parents tools to teach their children how to set positive goals, develop a system of appropriate rewards, and promote strategies of thinking that will enable children to go after whatever they want out of life.
