ED 626 - Positive Psychology

This course, for counselors and educators, begins with an exploration of the history and scientific underpinnings of this recently formed branch of psychology. Students explore the most current research in the area of “optimal human functioning”. Students will also engage in weekly experiential exercises that provide first hand exposure and experience with the most current techniques employed by positive psychologists. Students are asked to reflect on how positive psychology influences and shapes the work they will do as counseling or educational professionals. This is an elective course in the PsyD program.
