Course overview



This unique interactive course is taught in small groups by psychologists conducting cutting-edge research.

I liked the course very much...And what I like the most is a lot of practise...Overall, I think that this course is a great opportunity to develop the skills which will be really helpful not only at work but also in every-day life.

I really enjoyed the courses, not only because all the things I have learnt, but also because they have been very inspirational and motivating.
