COUN 595 Evidence-Based Happiness for Teachers (FHV)   

Educators throughout the U.S. are more stressed and less appreciated than ever. Unfortunately, educators have limited strategies for directly addressing their sources of stress (e.g., obtrusive and unfair criticism from parents, low pay, student distress, negative media coverage, etc.). This course, “Happiness for Educators” will provide a platform through which educators can learn evidence-based happiness interventions they can use with themselves and with their students. We will describe, discuss, and experience specific evidence-based happiness strategies. Although evidence-based happiness strategies are not magical techniques that will immediately transform your life, they’ve been shown to make small and meaningful differences in hope, physical health, and emotional wellbeing. During the course, we will define happiness, read happiness articles, listen to podcasts, examine scientific research studies, conduct research experiments in class, complete happiness lab assignments, and use published instruments to measure personal happiness and well-being.

This course meets online and can be taken for 3 graduate credits (credit/no credit or for letter grade) or 48 OPI units. We will have an optional “kick-off” live class on June 17 from 1:00pm to 2:20pm. The course is asynchronous and self-paced, but you will have regular prompts, communications, and feedback from course instructors. All coursework must be submitted by July 27.
