About this Event

This course introduces insights and practices we can engage in on a daily basis to improve our lives and the lives of others in the year ahead.

The course is presented as four ‘modules’ hosted on an online resource that includes videos, downloadable handouts and a discussion forum. A new module becomes available each week starting on January 1st 2021, each one addressing a specific question and inviting you to try out a practice linked to the question.

Our questions are:

Week 1 (from Jan 1st) – What is Positive Psychology? and how can Positive Psychology based Practices act as a foundation for a better year ahead? (introducing insights and practices that nourish wellbeing)

Week 2 (from Jan 4th) – How can I harness my strengths? (introducing strength-building insights and practices)

Week 3 (from Jan 11th) – What helps when things go wrong? (introducing resilience supporting insights and practices)

Week 4 (from Jan 18th) – How can I support wellbeing for us as well as me? (introducing insights and practices that nourish our relationships)

The course also includes a free webinar on Wednesday January 13th for an hour starting at 7.30pm UK time, this giving you an opportunity to hear more from the course trainers and ask questions.

If you like what we offer in the free webinar and taster online course, you might also be interested in our more in-depth online course in Positive Psychology Foundations that starts on January 27th 2021. This involves a series of eight weekly webinars on Wednesdays at 7.30pm UK time, supported by an accompanying online resource hosting the webinar recordings (so you can catch up if you miss the live events) and additional resources.
