It’s not enough to be “OK”! Human beings have the right to go beyond “normal” and achieve their potential! For so long, Psychology has been about reducing misery and suffering. To be fair, the profession of Psychology has helped so many live better lives, even with this “medical” model, where you diagnose an illness and provide therapy. Even some pathologies have been cured completely using this approach. This is all good, but again, it’s not enough.
Although Positive Psychology is fairly new, its approach is a game changer. It looks at the individual not in terms of illness or pathologies that must be “cured”, but on the strengths that can be developed to achieve wellbeing, even happiness. In Positive Psychology, being “OK” is not sufficient. We strive for nothing less than a wonderful happy life, full of meaning, motivation, enthusiasm, purpose, engagement, etc. In summary psychology should help clients be the absolute best they can be.
Dr. Alejandro Vogel has a profound and broad experience in Psychology, more specifically with CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and Positive Psychology. What is so appealing about these two therapies again is that you can show scientifically that they work, and relatively fast. There are other wonderful therapies which once in a while produce exciting transformations, but being pragmatic, Dr. Vogel focuses on what works and works fast. Clients should not be dependent on their therapist. They should be given the tools, precisely so they stop needing a therapist, and they can focus on developing strengths and talents, more on the positive and less on the negative.
Dr. Vogel, has also used his business background, and combined it with psychology to serve as a consultant of important institutions such as the World Bank, Interamerican Development Bank, as well as working with presidents of different countries in strategic projects such as Social Security Reform (The World Bank funded the publication of his book: Reform of the Pension System in Nicaragua)
Lately, he has written more about cognitive science related to business. For example, he just published a book in Amazon called: The Reptile in The Office, which examines organizational behavior from the perspective of the most recent discoveries of the human brain.
He obtained a bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in New York, an MBA from one of the best business schools in Europe, ESADE, Barcelona. He holds 2 post graduate degrees from Harvard University in Finance. Later he obtained a Post-degree in Marketing from the Technological Institute of Monterrey. In the field of training, he completed a master's degree in International Education, and most recently obtained a Doctorate in Positive Psychology in a program based on the structure of the University of Pennsylvania, with the collaboration of ISEP (Higher Institute of Psychological Studies of Spain) and the Atlantic International University.
He is now working on a third book which analyzes the potential combination of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) with Christian Psychology. The unique combination of hard core business training and experience with Psychology allows him to “understand” his clients more than it would be possible with just one side of the equation. A lot of CEO’s look for his advice because he can understand the psychological aspect of what is hurting his clients but is also able to “relate” to the everyday situations.
He founded the AV Business Psychology Institute, where he has online courses about Emotional Intelligence, Positive Psychology, etc. His YouTube channel: EL SECRETO DE LA FELICIDAD (The Secret of Happiness), has many of his presentations and TV interviews.
