Absolutely Brilliant course. The concepts are very well articulated and not just theoritical but backed up with scientific research and examples.
Lot of unlearning, learning and re-learning was involved but I thoroughly enjoyed the Positive Pyschology course.

This is an exceptionally beautiful course that has been very thoughtfully designed to not only build a solid intellectual understanding of the concepts behind positive psychology relate to positive emotions... but also to gain an experience of them oneself.
Thank you so much Barbara. So much of your course content resonated with how I try to live my life and connect with people I encounter. The science behind it is very encouraging and validates that approach and to keep moving and growing in that direction.

This course totally change my outlook on emotions and positivity. I totally agree that most courses in psychology focuses on what is or what went wrong. This focuses on what is and is going right which is a fresh take and outlook psychology and science.

Often positivity is seen as a "kumbaya" thing. Having science support for some facts is great for me since I often need the facts.
But this course goes beyond that, offering some tools to increase positive emotions in your life. I highly recommend it
