What people are saying

about positive psychology

I started this course without prior knowledge about Positive Psychology.

The key to learn in this course is without judgment and your previous thinking (often misunderstanding) about Positive Psychology.

I highly recommend this course since you not only learn about Positive Psychology, but it also enable you to apply it to your life.

I am strongly determined to learn more about Positive Psychology and try to live in my life more...

In my country (Croatia) there is little to no talk about positive psychology and this was a unique opportunity for me to learn more about it and I am sure it will help me with my own project based around creating more happiness in our daily lives.

There is so much more to learn about Positive Psychology.

This is a wonderful course that gives basic ideas about positive psychology.

dr. frederickson

Dr. Frederickson beautifully weaves together the importance of cultivating positivity with a scientific explanation on how doing so is possible.

I had taken the course 'A Lifetime of Happiness and Fulfillment' ALOHA-F) (see Indian School of Business) prior to this and recall Dr. Frederickson and her "Broaden-and-Build" Theory being sited.

I listened to the book that Dr. Frederickson wrote called Positive Psychology on CD while I was taking the course and both of them put together gave me many strategies and scientific evidence of cultivating positive psychology and connection and the benefits.

Thank you Dr. Frederickson and team!

Would love to learn more from Dr. Frederickson Thank you Dr B. L. FREDRICKSON for this course.
