A Holistic Approach for Personal and Organizational Development
“You will deepen your capacity for wellbeing and happiness and grow your professional knowledge and skills.”
The Positive Psychology Certificate program is dedicated to the vision of creating happier and healthier individuals who learn to flourish in their personal and professional lives, co-creating optimal relationships, organizations and communities.
The program’s mission is to facilitate pathways of growth for the attainment of emotional well-being and happiness by providing program participants effective theories, methods and techniques. The scientific framework that grounds this certificate program is based on positive psychology, a newly developed branch of psychology that focuses on optimal well-being, happiness and human flourishing, rather than on mental disorders and psychopathology.

The program features an experiential teaching methodology designed to facilitate students' holistic development of body awareness, emotional awareness, and relational awareness through the implementation of specific knowledge, skills, and exercises, including journaling, dyad work, active imagination, role playing, simulation, self-confrontation, mindfulness, meditation, and breathwork.

Apply positive psychology concepts and tools in their work and life
Gain knowledge and skill to increase individual, business and collective well-being
