The material is diverse and covers many of the major practices of Positive Psychology.

I would also like to thank Dr. Seligman for his course too, Positive Psychology, Visionary Science.

Philosophy has been an ongoing interest and I was actually looking for more courses in philosophy and came across the courses of Positive psychology and was curious so I took the first course.

It brought the theories of Positive Psychology to life through various practical examples.

This was my favorite positive psychology course thus far!

Deepened my understanding of resilience and positive psychology and provided practical tips that I can use with coaching clients.

It really was a gift.Robin Ritchings Gutmann I really enjoyed this course that demonstrated how can we practically apply various principles of Positive Psychology when we need them the most in our life.
