About the Event :

This workshop aims to introduce the language of Character Strengths which is used as a tool to build students' confidence. In the workshop, the Classification of Character Strengths will be introduced and participants will have chance to reflect on their own Character Strengths profile, including ownership of one's signature strengths as well as awareness of the shadow-side of particular strengths through practical activities. A strengths-based approach is used to help students understand themselves better and build self-confidence.
