Modern life presents us with situations that can challenge our ability to thrive and flourish. Although psychology has discovered a great deal about general principles of mental health and well-being, “one size does not fit all” and it can sometimes be difficult to know how to apply this knowledge in our own lives. Through mini-lectures and practical activities, this one-day event will address: the nature of psychological well-being; individual differences; ways of enhancing well-being and resilience; and practical strategies and techniques to create a ‘toolkit’ of skills and strategies and a personal well-being action plan.
Who should attend?
The day will be run by Jim Handley.
