Positive Psychology Specialization Project

Design Your Life for Well-being

This course is a part of Foundations of Positive Psychology , a 5-course Specialization series from Coursera.

You are encouraged to take the first four courses of the Foundations of Positive Psychology Specialization before starting this course and completing the Specialization Project. This course, taught by Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman brings all the key concepts from the first four courses to practice as you develop and test a new positive intervention for an audience of your choice. You identify opportunities in your daily life to increase the wellbeing by using knowledge you developed in the first four courses of the Specialization. In this final project, you evaluate the efficacy of a positive intervention based on subjective and objective measures. Then, you compare how empirical and non-empirically-based positive interventions can be applied to influence a person's wellbeing. Lastly, you reflect on how the fundamental elements of research methods are important in the everyday application of positive psychology. After completing all five courses, learners earn a certificate signed by Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman, Dr. James Pawelski, Dr. Angela Duckworth, Dr. Claire Robertson-Kraft and Dr. Karen Reivich.

positive psychology in 13 reviews

I loved all the courses in the Positive Psychology Specialization.

I'm not psychology background but I love studying psychology a lot, especially strengths and the positive psychology!

Qualification: this is my judgment of this course after having done the entire Positive Psychology Specialization in order.Very little content.

I've been interested in Positive Psychology .

It is also great to be taught by such a top figure in Positive Psychology - Martin Seligman.

It was a good practice to learn how to apply positive psychology to real life.

Anyone that wants to unvail Positive Psychology at it´s very basis must do this 5 course formation with the basis of positive science.

positive intervention in 6 reviews

I enjoyed delving more into strengths and also having to come up with a positive intervention.

I really liked designing a positive intervention but the videos were taken from the other courses.

It was very important not only personally but professionally be able to work in a positive intervention and all the lectures helped a lot.

A really beneficial course in which you learn how to apply positive interventions to your life by first hand and new techniques that contributes to your well-being in order to flourish.

It was a useful summary of many of the positive interventions and research skills.

chris peterson in 3 reviews

The theory from Chris Peterson on mental illness as an excess or absence of signature strengths is absolutely fascinating, and I completely enjoyed this course!

I thought it was very interesting to share Chris Peterson’s Unfinished Masterwork: The Real Mental Illnesses and ask for us, students, to give our opinions on the subject.
