Positive Psychology and Self Development Center is a boutique organization, which serves leaders who choose to powerfully engage stakeholders with upright ethics, responsibility, and achieving results.
Whether you are an individual, a team, or a national/ international corporation, Positive Psychology and Self Development Center offers established courses that focus on leadership, strength building, and development.
The main curriculum and all courses accredited by the “Knowledge and Human Development Authority” have been designed exclusively by Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener, also known as, the “Indiana Jones of Positive Psychology”. Besides, trained and qualified facilitators at Positive Psychology and Self Development Center present the latter.
Upon establishment, Positive Psychology and Self Development Center has taken a singular and unique approach towards supporting, challenging and motivating clients. The belief held is “that there is a great potential within each and every one of us, and it is waiting to be realized.” To extract this potential, facilitators at Positive Psychology and Self Development Center strive to help individuals understand both, their realized and unrealized strengths, so that they can recognize their leadership talents. Thus, individuals will be catapulted on the life path that they want to lead.
Positive Psychology and Self Development Center takes a unique \"whole person\" approach in corroborating, stimulating and inspiring each one of their clients. Whether facilitators, at Positive Psychology and Self Development Center , work with an individual or an entire organization, we help people achieve significant personal and professional success.
Positive Psychology and Self Development Center courses are based on the science of Applied Positive Psychology, which is a recent branch of psychology that focuses on human prosperity. This approach has created a lot of interest around the subject. Besides, in 2006, a course at Harvard University, entitled “The Science of Happiness”, became the most popular course during one of the semesters.
Positive Psychology and Self Development Center is applying the science of Positive Psychology for the first time in the Gulf and Middle East from 2011.
Positive Psychology can be defined into three overlapping areas of research (Seligman, Martin E. P, 2002)
The “Pleasant Life” or the “Life of Enjoyment”, examines how people optimally experience, forecast, and savor the positive feelings and emotions that are part of normal and healthy living (i.e. relationships, hobbies, interests, etc.)
The “Good Life” or the “Life of Engagement”, investigates the beneficial effects of immersion, absorption, and flow that individuals feel when engaged with their primary activities. These states are experienced when there is a positive match between an individual’s strength & the take he/she is doing.
The “Meaningful Life” or the “Life of Affiliation”, questions how individuals derive a positive sense of well-being, belonging, meaning, and purpose from being part of and contributing back to something larger and more permanent than themselves (i.e. nature, traditions, belief systems, movements, etc.)
