The Science of Wellbeing: A short, live, virtual course

New virtual course: The Science of Wellbeing

Duration: 2 hours

Humans are complex. Whatever we might read, there is no blueprint, no one-size-fits-all when it comes to protecting wellbeing.  However, science can help us adopt actions, choices and thoughts most likely to bring success, and stop us relentlessly striving for the things that we think will make us well, but don’t.


Course purpose

The aim of this course is to help participants -

  • understand the fascinating scientific research now available from teams of neuroscientists, psychologists and social scientists from around the world.
  • use this knowledge to inform decisions about the positive and practical actions that can be taken to improve health and wellbeing; whether as individuals exploring for themselves how to achieve this, or leaders and managers wanting to know how they can use science to create the optimal working environment for their teams.
