COU301 Positive Psychology for Counselling


Traditionally, the foundation for clinical and counselling psychology has been the psychopathological personality, which focussed on pre-classical psychoanalysis and modern practices to find what goes wrong in the human mind. This course will help you to examine factors that should be included when considering what goes right in the human mind – a study of strengths, virtues, optimism, hope, resiliency and happiness. The course is largely experiential and presents practical ways of using character strengths to promote and maintain wellbeing.
