This course provides an introduction to Positive Psychology. We will explore the concepts and research of Positive Psychology and complete exercises that will enhance your own understanding of well-being. Positive Psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living. It is a call for psychological science and practice to be as concerned with strength as with weakness; as interested in building the best things in life as in repairing the worst; and as concerned with making the lives of “normal” people fulfilling as with healing pathology.
