This training program was designed to offer practitioners a comprehensive, yet easy to understand framework to integrate positive psychology into their work with clients. The goal of this training is twofold. The first goal is to offer a structured, science-based curriculum that will enable practitioners to understand the various processes underlying the many topics within the field of Positive Psychology. The second goal is to offer a structural approach to directly apply positive psychology in order to assess and improve the client’s level of well-being.

In doing so, a sailboat metaphor is used as a guide. The different elements of a sailboat are used to provide an easy to understand, yet comprehensive structure for addressing the essential elements of well-being and their interrelations. The structure of this metaphor not only creates order in the diverse range of techniques and theoretical constructs, it also offers clients an intuitive perspective on human functioning that captures the complex nature of well-being without the need to understand the theoretical and scientific underpinnings of the various processes involved.

Maastricht is easily accessible by car and public transport. There is a very good rail network and you can get connections to and from anywhere in the Netherlands.

Maastricht is also served by a small airport (Maastricht Aachen Airport) with direct flights from selected cities in Europe. But many visitors will arrive at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. The easiest way to get from Amsterdam to Maastricht is by train, which takes about 3 hours.

Due to Maastricht’s proximity to the Belgian and German border, some visitors prefer to use Belgian or German airports. Brussels airport is for example within 2 hours distance of Maastricht by train.
