In this online text and video based course, you will learn the not so positive history of positive psychology, leading to a brief overview of the major concepts associated with positive psychology. Next you will watch a video of Martin Seligman, one of the founders of positive psychology, discussing his theory and how this new strength-based approach represents a paradigm shift in how we understand human resilience and well-being. The course ends with a discussion of the research on positive psychology and how it can help us, our families, and our communities thrive.
