Positive Psychology: You have the power to change your brain

Michaela will speak about our ability to change our brains through the use of applied positive psychology skills which are easily practiced habits that change our thoughts and mood increasing our personal well-being.


Michaela Avlund recently completed a Masters Degree in Applied Positive Psychology in London. She has been giving talks and workshops in the RDS for a number of years, she runs courses and Positive Psychology (PP) holidays in various meditation centres in Ireland. Her greatest wish is to see PP implemented in the Irish educational system as she believes Positive Psychology is a great tool in preventing depression and anxiety disorders and enhancing relationships in the school. Her research on self-compassion revealed that religion or spirituality does not lead to well-being unless a person also develops self-compassion. Michaela is Danish but has lived in Ireland for a number of years.
