About Graduate Certificate in Positive Psychology, Graduate Certificate - at CQUniversity Australia

This is a four-unit course design to equip you to develop and implement positive interventions aimed at improving the mental health of the population in a variety of contexts. The applied nature of the course will enhance your career prospects and employability by helping you to use positive psychology principles learned during the course within existing or future professional settings.

In this course, you will explore the history, development and practical application of positive psychology for enhancing the wellbeing and resilience of individuals, groups, communities and organisations. This, combined with contemporary theory will provide you with an understanding of the multi-dimensional nature of wellbeing with relation to human flourishing. In doing so the course will draw from Seligman's (2011) PERMA model: Positive emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Accomplishment, together with other elements of wellbeing such as resilience, optimism, hope, mind-body wellness, natural and built environments, sleep, nutrition, exercise, and collective wellbeing. You will examine system and behavioural change drivers and tools used to integrate change. Using the fundamental principles and theories you will research, design and develop positive psychology interventions across a range of settings.
