About the Course

You are encouraged to take the first four courses of the Foundations of Positive Psychology Specialization before starting this course and completing the Specialization Project. This course, taught by Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman brings all the key concepts from the first four courses to practice as you develop and test a new positive intervention for an audience of your choice. You identify opportunities in your daily life to increase the wellbeing by using knowledge you developed in the first four courses of the Specialization. In this final project, you evaluate the efficacy of a positive intervention based on subjective and objective measures. Then, you compare how empirical and non-empirically-based positive interventions can be applied to influence a person's wellbeing. Lastly, you reflect on how the fundamental elements of research methods are important in the everyday application of positive psychology. After completing all five courses, learners earn a certificate signed by Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman, Dr. James Pawelski, Dr. Angela Duckworth, Dr. Claire Robertson-Kraft and Dr. Karen Reivich....

A thought provoking workshop. How mental illness can be the lack, opposite or excess of our strengths. I enjoyed delving more into strengths and also having to come up with a positive intervention.

The subject and contents are quite interesting and useful, but the students are totally by they own. Everything that you produce is reviewed by other students at the same level as you. So feedback are really rare. I did not perceive the participation of any Teacher along the three months. So it is a collection of good videos, a few questions and exercises that you do without professional feedback

On top of that the certificate stated that you did the courses, but it also says that they are not considered as valid by the university, and that they are not comparable with the "actual" courses provided by the Pennsylvania University.

While I enjoyed Peterson's ideas a lot and found them a very helpful alternative framework to look at mental illness, I found it a bit of a shame that most of this last course in the specialization was recycled from the other 4 courses.
