Our courses currently address three main areas:
Personal wellbeingCourses for people wanting to increase their resilience, sustainable happiness and ability to make positive changes in their lives and world.
We have two main courses coming up this year, each introduced by a free webinar.
The Journey Approach to Change with Chris Johnstone looks at insights, skills and strategies that strengthen our ability to move towards any kind of goal.
The recording of the free webinar from April 16th is available at this link.
The eight-week online course starts on May 7th.
The Happiness Training Programme with Miriam Akhtar and Chris Johnstone draws on Positive Psychology research and explores how we can cultivate sustainable happiness in ourselves and others.
The free webinar which we call The Happiness Lectures Online, is on May 22nd. It will introduce the concept and practice of Sustainable Happiness.
The eight-week online course starts on 24th September 2014
Chris Johnstone also runs residential weekend versions of these courses at Newbold House in Forres, Scotland.
Practitioner trainingCourses for coaches, health professionals, educators and other practitioners involved in promoting resilience, happiness and positive change in others. Our practitioner training programme includes six-week courses in Motivational Interviewing (next one starts 18th March) and Positive Psychology for Helping Professionals (next one starts 28th Oct 2014).
Our courses also look at how we can contribute to resilience, happiness and positive change at a global level. We offer trainings for people concerned about the condition of our world and wanting to strengthen their ability to make a difference. Based on the book ‘Active Hope’ by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, our Active Hope Training runs several times a year. Our next group starts on April 7th 2014, and there will be another group starting on Sept 9th.
We also had a free webinar on Active Hope Book Groups on Feb 20th. You can listen to the recording here.
We are a social enterprise, aiming to be both financially self-sustaining and offer something useful to the world. Some of our events are free, while others we charge for. We are still quite new, so this website and our activities are still being developed.
