THRIVE Course 103: Activating Strengths in Pursuit of Well-Being

In this online text and video based course, you will learn and apply the 24 character strengths and six virtues identified by Peterson & Seligman. Positive psychology posits that character is made up of our unique strengths - those aspects of the self that are congruent with who we are - they include the talents we were been born with, the beliefs and values we develop as we experience life, and the skills we've mastered that help us get the most out of life. In this course, you will learn the 24 character strengths and how they fit within the six virtues. You will watch the experts discuss strengths and by identifying your own top strengths, called signature strengths, you will learn how you can activate your strengths in pursuit of well-being.
