Positive psychology is the scientific study of optimal human functioning at the individual, group and social levels. This relatively new area of psychology is a radical shift away from the focus of psychology on illness and pathology. The aims of the module are to introduce students to the field of study and to explore the links between theory and research findings in positive psychology and their applications in a variety of settings e.g. clinical, educational, occupational and personal contexts. In addition the module will explore the observation of attitude and behavioural change. Key areas covered will include wellbeing and resilience, happiness, emotional intelligence, positive self, positive relationships and attitude and behavioural change.
