Positive Psychology Masterclass: Part 1 & 2

Join two of the UK’s leading positive psychology trainers for a Masterclass in how to flourish

The Positive Psychology Masterclass is a 4-day practical course in the science of happiness, strengths & well-being, suitable for personal and professional development and for practitioners who want to add positive psychology into their toolkit. Learn how to feel good, function well and flourish through two 2-day workshops – Part 1 is the foundations workshop and Part 2 is the advanced. Designed for those who want to experience what positive psychology is about, add to their professional skills and for those thinking about signing up for the MAPP (MSc Applied Positive Psychology). It is facilitated by Miriam Akhtar MAPP and Bridget Grenville-Cleave MAPP (Workmad Ltd), who were two of the first handful of qualified positive psychologists in Europe and have since become leading positive psychology practitioners and trainers. Miriam and Bridget are associate lecturers on MAPP programmes in the UK (University of East London, Anglia Ruskin University) and Europe (Executive MAPP at the University of Lisbon). The Masterclass is endorsed by the University of East London, home to the first MAPP programme in Europe. This course is now in its 7th year and has given plenty of people their first break into positive psychology.

  • We have trained hundreds of participants with consistently high praise (see some of the feedback below). Many of our alumni have incorporated positive psychology into their businesses and have gone on to flourish in a variety of ways – we’ve now got a collection of books written by past delegates!

ppmpicThe 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, Hungary, 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 cover the foundations and experience what positive psychology is about. Then take the opportunity to practise using the tools before coming back to Part 2. We assume prior knowledge and experience of applying the science at Part 2 so please get in touch to discuss if you’d like to go straight to Part 2.
