Understanding psychology can improve your well-being and success, both at work and in your personal life. Positive psychology is the growing branch of psychology that focuses on the positive, including strengths, positive states and happiness. This course will have a particular emphasis on applying positive psychology in your personal and working life.
Topics studied will include:
The prolific writer Mark Vernon has produced a short on-line quiz to help you discover your ancient philosophy guru.
Do you think it's more useful to think about how to be happy or how to cope with suffering?and
Do you prefer pondering big issues or practical matters?I wasn't sure how to answer the question about the relative importance happiness or suffering, but when I plumped for happiness my ancient guru turned out to be Epicurus, which was uncannily accurate. I do have a lot of sympathy for Epicurus's values of friendship, philosophising, reason and happiness.
