Personal Resilience Training with Sheri Hendricks and Chris Johnstone, which was due to start on 17th March 2014, has been postponed. (You can listen to the recording of their free webinar here)
The Happiness Training Programme with Miriam Akhtar and Chris Johnstone starts on 24th September 2014
and the Journey Approach to Change with Chris Johnstone starts on 7th May 2014.

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.
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.
