Cursusdoelen
In this course, you will:
  • develop theoretical and practical skills that help you to become happier, and that you can use to advise others on how to become happier;
  • understand and are able to explain the main empirical results as well as the main theories in the psychology of happiness.
Inhoud
In this course, we will highlight the psychological mechanisms underlying happiness. Research indicates that well-being is only partly based on genetics and on circumstances and to a large extent caused by the choices we make. Questions that we discuss are, amongst others: does money really increase our happiness? And how should we spend our money to become happier? To what extent does our well-being depend on the relationships with and behaviours of others? What are the most important determinants of happiness in work? How do you become mindful? Is mindfulness a successful approach to increase happiness? More generally, what kind of activities can make us happy? And if you know what makes you happy, how can you increase the chance that you will actually act accordingly? These and other questions will be dealt with in the course on the psychology of happiness.
