Event description


The University of East London - School of Psychology cordially invites you to attend a virtual Q&A screening of the award winning documentary 'How to Thrive'.

This ground-breaking new film explores the science of happiness and wellbeing and how these learnings can create impact in our lives.

You're invited to see the film in the comfort of your own home and join us for a special Q&A hosted by Dr Andrea Giraldez-Hayes Director, Wellbeing and Psychological Services Centre UEL, in conversation with Positive Psychotherapist Marie McLeod, Director Duy Huynh and Producer Andrew Kelly.   


Positive psychotherapist Marie McLeod takes on 7 people on a transformative journey to learn the secret formula to happiness.

What the filmmakers say about the film:

The film’s premise is: if we offer these evidence-based approaches to people experiencing struggle, what difference would it make? Is happiness a learnable skill and can we teach people skills to live a happy, healthy and meaningful life?

The world of psychology has for far too long studied what goes wrong with the human mind. While these have led to important understandings about our deficits and disorders, there is also another side of these sciences. The science of what is right about us and what thoughts, actions, and behaviours we can all learn that make life worth living.

The result is an intimate, heartfelt and hopeful film that offers a rare glimpse into the lives of 7 people who make incredible transforms as a result of learning how to thrive.

 If you have capacity please consider donating to the impact campaign which will allow us to continue to run screenings & offer resources to communities that need it.
