Positive education is a paradigm that combines traditional education focused on academic skill development with approaches that nurture wellbeing and promote good mental health (Seligman, 2011). In the process, students’ social, emotional, moral and intellectual facets are developed (Waters, 2011). Significant to this perspective is the scientific inquiry into factors and strategies that promote wellbeing from a preventive and proactive rather than deficit model (Ahern, 2017). In view of this inherently worthy goal, this course seeks to introduce participants to the science of positive psychology to encourage and support schools and individuals to flourish. Participants will be introduced to the concept of wellbeing and its constituent components, with specific focus on Character Strengths and Mindfulness. Hence, participants will have the opportunity to develop and practice the skills, knowledge and strategies needed to enhance their students’, children’s or employee’s well-being, while developing their character strengths and mindfulness.
