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.
