Both Miriam and Bridget are renowned for their applied work within the science of well-being. The Masterclass has been attended by hundreds of people since it started 5 years ago, many of whom have now joined us on the UEL MAPP.

We have trained hundreds of participants with consistently high praise from satisfied clients (see some of the feedback below). Many of our alumni have gone on to start their own businesses with an element of positive psychology and flourish in a variety of ways – we’ve even got a collection of books written by past delegates.

PPM2picThe training takes place at the Engineers’ House by Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Bristol is conveniently located for rail services, is at the junction of the M4 & M5 motorways and the airport is a major gateway to Europe. Previous delegates have come from all over the UK, Spain, Switzerland, Slovenia, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany and from much farther afield – Angola and Australia (four times now!) One of the benefits of attending the Masterclass is to connect and share ideas with like-minded people with an interest in positive psychology.

Our recommendation is that you attend Part 1 first to experience what positive psychology is about and have an opportunity to practise using the tools. We assume prior knowledge and experience of applying the science at Part 2. Please get in touch if you’d like to go straight to Part 2.
