Introduction to Positive Psychology

For many decades, the discipline of psychology suffered from an image problem. It was negative in its focus, very negative. Psychologists primarily concentrated on what was “wrong” with people, and often ignored what was going “right”. This began to change in the late 1990s with the emergence of positive psychology. The primary goal of this course is to introduce you to the science of positive psychology. By completing this course, you will learn all about the positive aspects of human behavior, such as motivation, happiness & well-being, flow, mindfulness, creativity, spirituality & religion, grit, and wisdom through the lens of positive psychology. After completing this course, you will have a much more in-depth understanding of positive psychology.
