Your Signature Strengths:
Strengths-based Resilience (SBR) is based on the Values in Action Model of Character Strengths (Peterson & Seligman, 2004). Character strengths are the cornerstones of your Flourish profile. Your signature strengths are your salient character strengths of thinking, feeling, and behaving in a way that enable you to function optimally.
Your signature strengths such as creativity, bravery, kindness and social intelligence are not the same as your talents. Talents might include perfect pitch, athletic prowess or dexterity. You can improve these attributes but there usually is a genetic limit. Your signature strengths, on the other hand, can be built, even from frail foundations. The Flourish program will teach you skills to identify, use and build your signature strengths to manage your stress, improve your well-being and enhance your academic performance.
This well-being assessment is based on the PERMA model developed by Martin Seligman, a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology. Your overall well-being comprises your scores on positive emotions (P), engagement (E), relationships (R), meaning and purpose (M), and accomplishments (A).
