As a professional coach or therapist your most important role is to help your clients lead happier, more fulfilled lives. Having a greater understanding of Positive Psychology can help you to perform that role even more effectively.
This new and unique online course gathers together all the very latest research evidence in this important topic. It will also provide you with a wealth of new tools and ideas to use in your professional and personal life. And successful completion of the course will result in you receiving a CPD certificate to validate your 10 hours of study.
The course is not designed to provide a quick overview of Positive Psychology. It is an in-depth, book length course that will take you around 10 hours to complete. It comprises over 200 pages of material, three 20 minute tutorial videos, and over 30 interactive exercises and knowledge checks. It is structured around a new “Happiness Pinnacle” model, developed to reduce the complexity of the subject for participants. The model has been described as "useful" by Martin Seligman, the father of Positive Psychology
The International Coaching Federation has confirmed that the course qualifies for ICF Continuing Coach Education for 10 hours in the area of Resource Development.
