positive psychology in 14 reviews

This course increased my love for positive psychology.

Positive psychology is about as scientific as Scientology.

very good course for using positive psychology to have a better life.

This course allowed me to put Positive Psychology into practice in my own life.

I loved learning how to apply my understanding of positive psychology in a useful way.

It is recommended not only to the lovers of positive psychology, but everyone :) Everyone should have this information - it should be taught in every school at every grade level.

I want to recall that thanks this course I have made many reflections and personal work that's going to be very useful for me.I will continue with the learning and promotion of my wellbeing by doing the rest of Foundations of Positive Psychology courses, and applying the techniques and knowledge in the personal and professional plan that I'm working on, and of course savouring my accomplishments!

goal setting in 4 reviews

I've learn so many new things about having a more positive view of the world, on goal setting and savoring good things in my life.

The Goal Setting session has been changing in how I approach my business!

Great content, although left me hungering for a bit more explanation or links to access more information - for example a guide to interpreting the Hope Scale I benefitted greatly particularly with insights into goal setting from numerous academics with a variety of structures and a deepened understanding of the concept of Flow.

Also several times James Pawelski narrated personal stories and examples which were illuminating but also most of the times something i couldn't relate to and hence couldn't understand some concepts.

James Pawelski is really engaging and the material and pace is excellent.
