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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY SPECIALIZATION PROJECT: DESIGN YOUR LIFE FOR WELL-BEING
Very enlightening perspective on well being! learnt a lot of new concepts and interventions which are implementable in the real wordl.
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.
This is a very good course in an excellent specialisation. Granted, the material could be organised a little better, but the results are something to behold anyway.
Thank you to all the educators involved and to the late Prof Chris Peterson, your work continues to engage and inspire us.
