Learning to be Happy 2022-23
School Of Human And Behavioural Sciences
This module introduces the field of behaviour analysis and considers the potential value of understanding the role of learning in happiness. Understanding and facilitating happiness and quality of life is the central objective of many areas of psychology and can be best achieved through an analysis of behavior. It is both a scientific exercise - understanding happiness and predicting the factors that influence happiness - and an applied exercise - enhancing subjective well-being and happiness in clinical and commercial settings - and the world at large. Behaviour analysis and behavior change can provide pointers of how to face the world in a positive manner and to avoid life's ills.
