Positive interventions are one of the building blocks for the application of positive psychology in our day-to-day lives. In this course taught by Dr. James Pawelski, we explore positive interventions through theory, research and practice. We provide learners the basic tools for using and measuring positive psychology in professional or personal contexts. Suggested prerequisite: Positive Psychology: Martin E. P. Seligman’s Visionary Science.

How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.

Awesome class if you are ready to start working on yourself and reflecting on your thoughts and behaviors. "Interventions" offers practical exercises to increase positivity and other character attributes that you want to strengthen.
It's so interesting class seemed to be over in a flash. It also has great resources if you want to read more deeply on a subject and links to essential psychology surveys.
The small amount of graphic design/animation employed was great and I wish they had others made for other lesson segments. The short animation on green cape/red cape behavior was just the kind of attention-getting images I want in an online MOOC!
