PSY 231 Positive Psychology
Up one level
Focuses on human strengths rather than the traditional view of psychology that tends to focus on the worst of human nature. This course is designed to explore strengths-based research, concepts of happiness, helpfulness, and resiliency. The research and theories about human nature will go beyond simply not being mentally ill as a form of mental health, which will include optimism, post-traumatic growth, and how to increase emotional, psychological and social functioning. Overall, this course will be focused on understanding one’s own sense of life satisfaction and how to further improve well-being.
