Compliments about Positive Psychology Learning

Feedback From Positive Psychology Learning Events

The most useful elements of the course were gratitude, happiness ratio, random acts of kindness, happiness and hope theory. The course was very well run, enjoyable throughout and thought provoking. I think the resilience training would be useful at RAF Cosford.

We were given a broad spectrum of Positive Psychology which was a good overall introduction. I feel as though strengths is a core subject and the happiness equation re-affirms that it is our choice and responsibility to whether we are happy or not!
