Applied Positive Psychology

Course Overview


The science of positive psychology is our sweet spot. Positive psychology is an empirical approach to understanding what goes right, rather than what goes wrong, with people. Topics in this science include well-being, optimism, resilience, courage, flow, and many others. We leverage our expert knowledge in this field to introduce practical skills that are nuanced and effective. This course is taught by Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener. Robert is a leading authority on the application of positive psychological science to coaching. He is widely recognized as both an early pioneer in the field and a thought leader in emerging practices.  This distance learning program uses a virtual classroom for written materials, pre-recorded lectures, and a live web-based platform for instruction. Applied Positive Psychology introduces learners to elements of positive psychology they cannot get elsewhere. This 6-week course meets twice a week for 1.5 hours a class.
