The Science of Wellbeing: A Training Course

In-House Training Courses > The Science of Wellbeing

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

Why understanding the science of wellbeing is so important

This course aims to help participants -

  • Understand the fascinating scientific research now available from teams of neuroscientists, psychologists and social scientists worldwide.
  • 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 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.

Key benefits of attending this course

  • Gain insight into emotional wellbeing through current scientific research, discerning effective practices from ineffective ones.
  • Achieve clarity regarding choices that enhance individual, team, and organisational wellbeing.
  • Create opportunities for introspection, enabling individuals to evaluate behaviours, thoughts, emotions, and workplace environments, safeguarding their wellbeing.
  • Make informed decisions aimed at improving overall wellbeing based on scientific understanding.
  • Implement clear actions to integrate newfound knowledge and practices,  which improves personal and organisational wellbeing.

Who would benefit from attending this course?

This course is ideal for anyone involved in wellbeing and supporting others at work. This includes employees at all levels, from frontline workers to managers and leaders, human resources professionals, occupational health specialists, and workplace counsellors.
