The Positive Psychology course at the Maastricht Summer School will provide you with valuable insights from the field of positive psychology to help you boost your resilience and lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. 


Key facts:

  • In three weeks, you will take a scientific and personal deep dive into topics like autonomy, self-compassion, meditation, mindfulness, happiness, character strengths, optimism, post-traumatic growth, and resilience.
  • According to Positive Psychologists at the Maastricht Summer School, every individual has the potential to be the “captain of their own sailboat”. Every single individual has unique strengths and an innate ability to face difficult weather circumstances. In this course, we will unlock your character strengths and focus on helpful ways to support yourself in difficult times. We will cover the most important theories in Positive Psychology and you will be encouraged to go search for scientific literature to apply the topics we will cover to your specific areas of interest.
  • Autonomy is key in this course, so you will be encouraged every step of the way to be your own best guide in exploring the field.
