IV International Conference on Health Research:
responding to the changing world
The IV International Conference on Health Research: responding to the changing world aims to focus on research responses to the rapid changes at the global level, based on political, social, cultural, educational and economic transformations that influence health. It also provides an opportunity for academics and professionals from different health areas to bridge knowledge and promote interest in health care research and development. This conference will take place at the Portuguese Red Cross Northern Health School, on April 10, 11 and 12, 2019. Evidence-based practice in health is extremely important for a safe care, adequate and scientifically valid practice. All health processes and procedures must be properly contextualized, consistent and rigorous so that they are valid and recognized by the scientific and global community. The challenge is to build an innovative response in global health, health education, family and community health, responses to health / disease processes, health information systems and technologies, virtual reality and simulation. Following previous editions we intend to promote collaboration of excellency between academics and practicionners from the various health disciplines in the creation of research networks.

3) networking with international researchers;
4) workshops that will give you practical experience about iterative learning in higher education: innovative methodologies.

MINOR APPLIED POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY
In this international minor we will look at the scientific knowledge on happiness and wellbeing and at the factors that lead to a sense of wellbeing, meaning and connection. Based on this knowledge we will look further into and develop interventions that can help individuals, organizations, communities and society at large to flourish.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life’
When being asked the question what do you want most out of life, people from all over the world answer: to be happy! But despite decades of economic growth we are no happier now than sixty years ago. What is happiness and do we really know what makes us happy? Do we give happiness enough priority? Can we influence our own happiness and the happiness of others and how? These (and more) questions are being asked and answered by positive psychologists all over the world and will be addressed in the minor Applied Positive Psychology.
What is Positive Psychology?
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of wellbeing and human flourishing. This new branch on the psychology tree was founded in 2000 by Martin Seligman and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. They were not happy about traditional psychology’s emphasis on what is wrong and on weaknesses. Psychology should also look at what is right and at strengths of people. Since then psychologists all over the world started to study happiness, wellbeing and the good life. According to Seligman we can indeed influence our own happiness by changing our actions and by making the right choices. We can flourish individually and together through experiencing positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and accomplishment (PERMA model of wellbeing, 2011).
Is Applied Positive Psychology a minor for you?
Are you interested in psychology in general and in focussing on solutions and human strengths? Are you interested in why we do the things we do and in how we can change our thoughts and behaviour to become happier? Are you interested in helping people, organizations and communities to flourish and become their ‘best possible self’? Are you interested in studying in a multi-cultural community, then you will like this minor!!
