Free Positive Psychology series: Shan’s cockscrew of hope (Awarded Best Speaker!)

In a series of ten talks, the fifth in my free Positive Psychology collection is entitled Shan’s cockscrew of hope. In this talk, cockscrew is defined as a series of loops experienced in a rollercoaster ride. What has the cockscrew got to do with me, hope and Positive Psychology? A triad of hope buffers will be suggested as well.

I invite you to the fifth of my Positive Psychology series tomorrow evening in Singapore. Details as follows:

  • Venue: Bukit Merah Toastmasters Club, Bukit Merah Community Club, Singapore
