Course Detail: WELL-9051 - Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness

Positive psychology research has exploded in the past 20 years. Positive psychology is not a "fluffy" concept which ignores the realities of life nor is it simply thinking positively.  According to Martin Seligman-who is seen as the founding father of positive psychology-the positive psychology movement can be described as: "The study of what constitutes the pleasant life, the engaged life, and the meaningful life." 

This seminar will explore the research of what really does enhance mood and sense of wellbeing and what are merely myths or assumptions. You will learn concrete ways to help your clients live more satisfying and meaningful lives. There are interventions that make a difference.  The information presented will be applicable to you in your personal and professional lives.
