Abstract

This paper offers a brief interim report of a project reviewing student views and perspectives of positive psychology interventions contained in course assignments. Initial observation has identified three themes emerging from the analysis: “time and meaning,”“happiness and...,”and “strengths in context.”These argue that while positive psychological interventions are appropriately evaluated by way of randomized controlled experimental studies, the practice of these activities involves a recognition of personal motivation, meaning,and particularly social context
