This course totally change my outlook on emotions and positivity. I totally agree that most courses in psychology focuses on what is or what went wrong. This focuses on what is and is going right which is a fresh take and outlook psychology and science.

Often positivity is seen as a "kumbaya" thing. Having science support for some facts is great for me since I often need the facts.
But this course goes beyond that, offering some tools to increase positive emotions in your life. I highly recommend it

It's a great course. I would like to give it 4.5 stars, so I rounded it up...
If you liked this course, I really recommend the Harvard open course in Positive Psychology with Professor Tal Ben-Shahar, which was recorded in 2010 or 11, and is online.

I found this course really eye opening. I am now more aware of my emotions and the effect my actions and words have on those around me. I am now aware of downward spirals and before it goes any further, I take a step back, reevaluate the situation

Great course material for casual study. This class is not at all demanding but has a lot of useful materials that we can apply in our life. The quiz questions are too simple and obvious but I guess that is not the purpose of this course :)

I loved this course mainly because I enjoy looking at the straights instead of the problems. Furthermore, I loved the discussion bored mainly because I had the opportunity to help others and myself by contributing my thoughts and feelings.

It was my first step in the world of Positive psychology and I must say it was a joyful ride. I love the deliberative approach of the lecture, I could organically feel connected as part of the lecture and it was a really insightful course.
