A comprehensive introductory view of validated positive interventions in positive psychology, adopting a hands-on approach in assignments to allow all participants to engage in the practices timely.

AMAZING. I love Dr. Pawelski! The way he teaches is extremely easy to understand by using examples. This course itself was also entertaining and inspirational. It can definitely apply to real life.

I think was a very inspiring course. Dr. Pawelski gave references of interesting books; I would have like some more readings. Sometimes I felt hearing the same person standing up does not engage me as with a community or slides background.

The course is a great supplement to the other positive psychology specialization courses. It allows you to. go a little further in your exploration of the different methods and possibilities to applying positive psychology interventions.

This course was beneficial to me in some circumstances. However, I think that it has some advertisement for some books and for the instructor as well, that will be better without those kind of stuff.

Thanks a lot professor for your help.

It felt like a bit of repeat of the first course in many areas but I did learn a lot. I think more time needed to be dedicated to his own research instead of just paraphrasing so many other researchers.

Good course. Some parts were left with little explanation: the hope scale results were hard to interpret. The Via survey was great - could have spent more time with that.

I really like how this course focused on interventions that anyone can learn about and learn to apply in their lives, in any venue (personal, professional, etc).

Great content, although left me hungering for a bit more explanation or links to access more information - for example a guide to interpreting the Hope Scale

You can tell that a few areas were as stretch to get enough content. But what was taught was really excellent.
