This is a wonderful course that gives basic ideas about positive psychology. It is greatly organised and easy to follow. The given exercises are helpful and very motivating. It helped me a lot in my everyday routine.

Excelente curso, te da la opinión y conocimiento de la psicología positiva a través de varias ramas de trabajo o actividades para que puedas enfocar la psicología positiva y emociones positivas a tu vida personal y también a tu área de trabajo.

Thank you for this wonderful course :)

I have learnt the clear definition of "Positive Psychology" even with my limited knowledge of Psychology. Dr. Fredricks has explained profound theories in simple terms and in the same time introduced a lot of practical skills for getting more involved in positive emotions. I got what I expected when choosing this course at the very beginning. And really appreciate all your hard work :)

In addition, I would like to thank the platform designer for helping extend my learning time for me to catch up with the course after a pause, it has been really helpful to people who works full time :)

Wish my colleagues online could enjoy this course as I do :)

Awesome class. Lots of practical applications to cutting edge research. You'll feel great once you've completed the class.
