Positive psychology has emerged as a growing field in response to the realisation that wellbeing is not simply the absence of disease, but is related to multiple factors that enable humans to flourish.

Developed in support from the Wellbeing and Resilience Centre located at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), the Graduate Diploma of Positive Psychology will draw on a variety of evidence-based theories, models and best practice from disciplines including positive psychology, coaching psychology, health promotion, positive education, counselling, eco-psychology and social innovation.
