Positive psychology

RCS is delighted to be working with Bangor University’s School of Psychology on their positive psychology research programme. Positive psychology is an emerging field which looks at improving resilience and promoting quality of life through building on personal strengths. RCS provides sponsorship for PhD student Kate Isherwood to take forward her research in this field, which is part-funded by the European Social Fund through the Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarships (KESS) 2 programme. RCS is also working with Bangor to develop a range of interventions using positive psychology and behaviour change techniques to promote employability and wellbeing.

Kate Isherwood is currently recruiting employers and employees to become involved in her study into the impact of positive psychology on motivation, resilience and well-being in the workplace.
The intervention will consist of a one-hour group session, with a follow-up session one week later. Participants will also need to keep a short diary for one week.
Participation is free of charge.

  • Sessions can be delivered at the employer’s workplace if there are six or more employees taking part.
  • Individual employees can attend group sessions in Bangor or Rhyl by arrangement
  • The research programme will run from April to August 2017

RCS is also collaborating with Bangor’s School of Psychology on a ground-breaking new programme which uses positive psychology techniques to improve employability and wellbeing.
