Stimulated by the ground-breaking work of Positive Psychologists such as Martin Seligman, both popular media and academia have seen an upsurge of interest in the new “Science of Happiness.”
What exactly is “happiness”? Can we measure happiness or peace of mind? What do the latest scientific data tell us about the causes of happiness? How can we use the science of happiness to become happier and fight depression?
We will explore these questions and more while examining the work of philosophers and psychologists from both East and West who have pioneered the exploration of happiness. In doing so, we will examine recent discoveries in the scientific study of happiness, their concrete implications for well-being, and strategies to integrate these new insights into personal and professional life.
This course, which includes two live, interactive webinars, is designed for individuals interested in personal well-being, as well as professionals involved in counseling, clinical psychology, human resource management, and life coaching. Emphasis is placed on the practical implementation of the latest scientific discoveries on happiness, AKA psychological well-being, in the fields of Positive Psychology, social psychology and neuroscience.
