What will I study?

Overview

Through this course, you will learn how to create and evaluate positive, meaningful change in a range of professional contexts – and build the skills to promote optimal leadership within organisations.

Learning and assessment takes place through a range of tasks including debates, case studies, role plays, videos and research. You’ll also be encouraged to apply positive psychology principles to your own life and critically reflect on these experiences.

The program covers the different strategies that individuals and groups use to enhance and promote health, and the important factors that involve sustained behavioural change.
