Primary Instructor:

This course concerns itself with the basics of positive psychology. Positive psychology calls for as much focus on strength as on weakness, as much interest in building the best things in life as in repairing the worst, and as much attention to fulfilling the lives of healthy people as to healing the wounds of the distressed.

Attendance at discussion is strictly required. Students will write brief papers, do projects, and take two objective exams.
