TOP REVIEWS FROM POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: RESILIENCE SKILLS
Very good class. Condensed presentation of many different toolkits. now the challenge is to implement them in one's life on a day to day basis. Looking forward to seeing the changes!
The course was really good. I had some idea of mindfulness but the course brought up some refreshing new concepts on resilience and it turned out to be really useful for me. Thank you so much Karen!
I truly enjoyed the course as the content is very useful and important not only for my profession, as a expat women life coach, but also for my personal life.
Thank you for this amazing journey!
Excellent! There was some common sense here, but plenty of new data and tools anyone can use in both their personal and professional life. A must for every human who wants to get the most out of life.
