Positive Psychology is a science of optimum human functioning. Put simply, it is a study of you at your best. Psychologists all around the world dipped into the latest science, in an attempt to find the best activities to help you live your live to the full. Their quest culminates in an array of evidence-based interventions many of which will be discussed during this programme. This session is a story-telling of the best nuggets of positive psychology knowledge that everyone needs to know in order to live a good life. It is your treat to yourself and your family, who will reap the benefits of your newly acquired knowledge.
