Excellent! There was some common sense here, but plenty of new data and tools anyone can use in both their personal and professional life. A must for every human who wants to get the most out of life.
I truly felt like I was in a classroom learning all the material! I greatly appreciated all of the real-world applications and hearing all of the different perspectives throughout each week and topic!

I have participated in a few live resilience classes. This has been the most relevant class, and by far, the best. I appreciate hearing the evidence based rationale through the videos and the self reflection exercises did not feel forced. I wish you the best as you evolve the program.

This course didn't just teach you operational definitions and applications, it will teach you about the essence of your mental health and how it directly affects your body and behavior. I love it, this is my first course, very insightful and helpful in my career path as a psychiatrist.

I am loving the course. The elements mentioned are so applicable and practicable in day-to-day life.
I liked the 'Thinking Traps', their recognition and methods of resolution.
Am already a big fan of Barbara Fredrickson's - whose theory is getting covered.
All in all - brilliant course.

This was another interesting course, but what I found most enjoyable was the ease with which I found myself making progress and taking the lectures. When I slept, I would wake with the desire to know more, and continue learning more about resilience. 10/10 and highly recommended.

So, totally loved everything about class! Especially, all the hot guys and rad chics! I mean, what happens at UPenn stays at UPenn. Know what I mean? Here is a song: Thompson Twins, Wish You Were Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=po2ahzuziEw&list=RDpo2ahzuziEw&start_radio=1

Simply life-changing course, Professor Reivich saved no effort in creating an interesting course, that easy and digestible by all professionals.
Her competence and and vast amount of knowledge builds the curiosity for any leaner to want to know, learn, and apply more.

Excellent course. It was easy to relate to the professor; the material was well organized; the coursework was relevant and clear; the supplemental readings added to the depth of knowledge. My favorite in the positive psychology series offered through Wharton.

A great experience having participated in this MOOC, the practical and efficient samples of how to be aware and how to be present with those who are with us opens up a different panorama for me to value what I have with gratitude and to be in mindfulness.

Great MOOC full of useful skills for life. Very interesting and easy to follow up. I strongly recommend it.
It is a real privilege to have access to the best teachers and communicators and among all Karen has been a wonderful teacher, thank you very much,
por Jamie C•
Excellent, practical, actionable. Ideal balance between context and actionable take-aways. In-depth but not so in-depth that I thought it was overly difficult to achieve the weekly assignments.
Challenging but not overwhelming in content requirements.
por Natalia F d O M L•
Very interesting and well-planned course (though its content partially with content from other courses in this Specialization). It's useful both for your personal and professional life.
Full of skills and tools we can all learn and practice. Glad I did!
por Barbara R•
Material is presented in a simple, easy to understand way. There is substance behind the research but the most useful thing about the class is how practical the information is, and how it can really improve our well-being and happiness in daily life.
