The AIM Overseas Positive Psychology in Canada program will give students the opportunity to explore the emerging field of Positive Psychology.

Psychologists have traditionally treated mental illness from a perspective of repairing damaged habits, damaged drives, damaged childhoods, and damaged brains. This new way of thinking will gives students the opportunity to explore areas such as strengths, optimism, happiness, hope, and resiliency. Positive psychology focuses on the promotion of well-being and happiness.
