Even in challenging times humans have always found ways to employ their psychological resources to not merely survive but to thrive and flourish. This course will focus on individual, inter-personal and institutional wellbeing and will explore frameworks for wellbeing that have been developed over the last few decades.  In addition to looking at the research behind such topics as character strengths, positive emotions, meaning, relationships, compassion vs. empathy and mattering, students will have the opportunity to engage in weekly positive interventions that will help them understand how to apply the science of wellbeing to their everyday lives.
