In this group we learn what psychology can contribute to a flourishing and happy life. Topics such as happiness, well-being, mindset, emotions, resilience and positive institutions will be discussed. We will also try out activities which have been shown to increase happiness. This group is for you if you are interested in these topics, willing to try out something new and ready to use your strengths to shape the world around and inside of you.
