Introduction to Positive Psychology Online Course

Online version of our most popular course

Since the disruption caused by the Covid19 pandemic, our course, ‘Introduction to Positive Psychology’ will be delivered as an online course until further notice.

 The course offers the same contents as our 2-day course, offered in online modules with the advantage that it is available for registration and commencement at any time.

 We anticipate the course material would take approximately two days to study but you can work at your own time and pace. The certificate course must be completed within 4 months and requires a simple end of course assignment.

 We are pleased to pass on savings from venue costs to our delegates, which represents a discount of almost 50% on the full price of the 2-day course (£650).

Who is the course for?

The course is designed to appeal to anyone who is interested in the subject of positive psychology. Whether you’re a coach, counsellor, health care worker, teacher, HR professional or simply have an interest in self-development, we are sure this course will open your mind to the possibilities of positive psychology and the impact it could have on you and your relationships, in your personal and professional life.

Discount for MAPP students

This course commonly leads to participants wishing to formally study the subject of Positive Psychology. We work in collaboration with Bucks New University MAPP course to support this possibility. Applicants who have already completed our course with the certificate and are later accepted on Bucks New University MAPP course, will be eligible for a 10% discount of their course fees.

Learning not training

Positive psychology, the scientific study of that which enables us to thrive and flourish, is becoming increasingly recognised and adopted in industry, education and healthcare.  Unlike a lot of training courses, our emphasis is placed on experiential learning that encourages you to engage in a practical way with the material we provide.

We will recommend ways of how to record your thoughts and insights as you progress through the course and suggest some practical exercises to help you explore some of the positive psychology theory and positive interventions. You will have access to PDFs, videos, articles, discussion forum and online support from your course facilitators.

  • An overview of Positive Psychology, its theory and application
  • An scientific and subjective exploration of the topics, happiness, positive emotions, gratitude, strengths, resilience, growth mindset and hope theory
