"It is a nice and smooth module that was running in a very professional and interesting way by our lecturer, Sha En. Right from day one she allowed us to live and apply this journey of learning the different psychology interventions. She shared her own experience which allowed us to connect easily and in a very warm hearted way to the subject. This module already gave us amazing tools to apply Positive Interventions in our daily lives as much in a personal and a professional level."
