15 April 2019

18 h 30 min / 20 h 30 min


“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” Marcus Aurelius

Do you see the glass half empty or half full?
Are you expecting sun after each rain or rather getting sad while enjoying something, thinking that for sure this will be over?
This session is about the mounting evidence suggesting that optimism isn’t just a form of denial but a necessary component for resilient and happy individuals.
Recent research showed positive correlations between optimism and happiness, health and achievement.
What you will find out:
– Elements of optimism (and especially what is not optimism)
– The advantages but also the limitations of optimism
– The importance and roles of emotions for our mental wellbeing and for our capacity to find solutions
– Reframing methods and how to find the right balance between optimism, pessimism and realism

General information about the WellBeing Program:

The Wellbeing Program is designed to support participants with practical exercises and theoretical knowledge to maintain or improve on the long term their mental wellbeing and more.
This is done through interactive, playful and experiential group sessions based on the science of Positive Psychology.
It has 10 sessions of 2 hours, each with a specific theme related and connected between them. For a maximum impact we strongly recommend to participate in most of the sessions (the best would be all 10 of them) and to practice between the sessions.
The frequency of the sessions is approximately each two weeks (the whole program extends over 6-7 months).
