Instructor Bio

Maria Ruberto is the founder and director of Salutegenics Psychology, a strengths-based practice that moves people in personal and professional spaces toward mental fitness and life-health. Maria’s work is based on the theory of Salutogenesis where wellbeing is built from the development of positive human assets, including affective functioning and strengths-based skills.

She is a psychologist and certified neuropsychotherapist with over 30 years experience in education, clinical and industry platforms. Her implementation of research encourages the increase in capacity and performance of individuals and teams who rely on highly tuned relationships, emotional intelligence and resilience to achieve professional, corporate, organisational and client growth.

Her work is dynamic, interactive and spirited, anchored by research in neuroscience and brain function, and framed by the science of wellbeing.

Maria is currently a consultant to Hello Driven in the co-construction of Resilience First Aid certification program. Her work has included consulting to Beyond Blue as Instructional Director of SenseAbility; ReachOut.com as a Development Practitioner of online mental health training; Travancore School of Mental Health which is a partnership with the Royal Children’s Hospital; Orygen Youth Mental Health and education; and Swinburne University as a conduit for schools within Emotional Intelligence training. She is currently partnering with Kieser Australia to align mental fitness with functional form and body strength.

Maria delivers workshops and professional learning to organisations focused on teaching people to open their lives, apply optimistic tools and activate positive affectivity within a meaningful and fulfilling context. The core mission of her work is moving young people and adults from languishing to flourishing, with respect, resilience and resolve.
