Parent Seminars on Positive Psychology

Posted: November 12, 2015

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.  Discovery College is committed to developing a flourishing community through embedding that practices of Positive Psychology into everyday life.

These parent seminars will use the fundamental concepts of Positive Psychology and Positive Education to illustrate the fundamental key concepts of children’s positive development and equip parents with techniques and skills in nurturing their children. The seminars also aim at providing a platform for parents to share their views on children’s positive development, and at the same time reexamine parents’ beliefs and practice in parenting.  (Please refer to attachment for further information).
