Modern life presents us with situations that can challenge our ability to thrive and flourish. Although psychology has discovered a great deal about general principles of mental health and well-being, “one size does not fit all” and it can sometimes be difficult to know how to apply this knowledge in our own lives. Through mini-lectures and practical activities, this one-day event will address: the nature of psychological well-being; individual differences; ways of enhancing well-being and resilience; and practical strategies and techniques to create a ‘toolkit’ of skills and strategies and a personal well-being action plan.

Who should attend?

  • Those wanting to enhance their own psychological well-being
  • Those with an interest in helping others with their well-being
  • Those with responsibility for other people (managers, team
    leaders, parents, partners etc.)


  • The nature of psychological well-being and how it can be increased
  • Happiness and positive emotion
  • Satisfaction, purpose and meaning in life
  • Individual differences between people
  • Moving from ‘striving’ to ‘thriving’
  • How to maintain psychological well-being


The day will be run by Jim Handley.
