Cultivating Happiness
The Science and Strategies of Well Being

Positive psychology, a research-based science, is changing the way we experience happiness. In this course, you will learn the concepts, tools and practices to help you build a fuller life. Through discussion and exercises, you will discover ways to increase positivity and resilience, recognize and use your character strengths, engage meaning and purpose, and develop healthy and fulfilling relationships.

Hands-on activities and journaling will facilitate our exploration of a gratitude practice, mindfulness techniques, your ideal self, and ways to use your inner resources during challenging times.
