The workshops are a fun and accessible way to learn about how to boost wellbeing. They creatively explore 10 different themes taken from Applied Positive Psychology.
The workshops take place in the vibrant and comfortable Light Box shop. They provide information and group discussion, led by two warm and friendly facilitators and supported by a volunteer team.
During each workshop:
- You will be engaging with an innovative creative activity
- You will have something to take away
- You will receive ideas and tools for maintaining habits that promote wellbeing
