In this course taught by Dr. James Pawelski, we explore positive interventions through theory, research and practice.

TOP REVIEWS FROM POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: APPLICATIONS AND INTERVENTIONS
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.
Excellent course. It builds up in the first basic course. Besides theoretical understanding the course provides practical tips which are useful in ones own life as well as in guiding others.
