The Positive Psychology programme is a unique experience, exploring one of the most contemporary branches of psychology today. As many universities do not yet offer positive psychology courses, this is a rare opportunity to broaden your academic knowledge and stand out to potential employers. Maastricht University is home to an internationally renowned Psychology and Neuroscience faculty and is a growing centre for psychology research.

The course Positive Psychology will start with a general introduction to the field of positive psychology. The main concepts will be introduced and clarified, and an overview of the results of happiness studies will be presented. In subsequent meetings, various specific topics will be discussed by means of lectures and group discussions. There will be ample room to gain hands on experience with positive psychological techniques ranging from simple journal exercises to mindfulness meditation. A scientific evidence-based approach will be leading. We will provide participants with the tools to be able to evaluate and design research in the area of positive psychology, but also with the skills to apply some important intervention techniques.
