Course Description

Social scientists suggest that approximately 40 percent of our happiness comes from intentional activities we do in everyday life. This course will provide science-based theory and easy-to-do activities to help us improve our quality of life. Using a positive psychology model based on the work of Martin Seligman and others, we’ll consider how positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and achievement help us build well-being. Our text is "Positive Psychology: A Practical Guide," in which “you’ll find sure-handed guidance on developing habits of happiness,” per the flyleaf. We will supplement this short and easy-to-read book with outstanding TED Talks, Internet articles, and relevant self-discovery inventories. You can expect lively, engaging discussion, laughter, and new insights among friends who have similar interests, as well as time for personal reflection to put it all together for yourself. | Facilitated discussion; Active participation; Viewing videos
