TOP REVIEWS FROM POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: RESILIENCE SKILLS
The content is a refresher of everything you need to hear to be a good, high-functioning human! I loved it, but just spent the course wanting the pace to pick up. Good material does that.
Dr. Reivich is a terrific presenter. She provides frequent and useful summaries, is clearly passionate about the subject, and has organized the content in a very logical, easy-to-follow manner.
I'd highly you do this course and its companion course Positive Psychology: Martin E. P. Seligman’s Visionary Science. I started them three weeks ago and the changes have been dramatic :)
Good information, but very high level. Basically, we learn what exists but not how to implement it. For instance, we learn that mindfulness is a good resilience skill and why but not how to implement.
