Guest Speaker: Confessions of a Recovering Academic

Dr Andy Cope

Our guest speaker at the Festival of Doctoral Research 2018 was Dr Andy Cope. Also known as Dr Happy.

Dr Andy Cope had a tale to tell to our Postgraduate Researchers and University Staff. In this lecture, Dr Happy touched on Positive Psychology, human flourishing and, how to increase your happiness.

The workshop used Dr Happy's cutting edge research to explore how you can be you, but the brilliant version. Dr Happy shared some of the 'secrets' of Positive Psychology, focusing on learning new habits of thinking and behaviour that will sustain personal ‘brilliance’. It is about the ‘whole you’ and, as such, is applicable in and out of your PhD.




Flourishing is when your happiness is bigger than you
