HTPcoverThe Happiness Training Plan presented by Dr Chris Johnstone and Miriam Akhtar

The Happiness Training Plan is a self-help audio programme based on positive psychology and using evidence-based tools from the science of happiness. The CD is designed to have an anti-depressant effect, to help you raise and recover your well-being. It condenses what is known about increasing happiness into 12 easy-to-follow tracks, which each lasts around 5 minutes. The strategies draw on scientific research together with the presenters’ personal experiences of overcoming depression. The programme was launched at the 2008 University of Bristol Happiness Lectures. In 2012 the CD became available as a downloadable MP3.
