Emotional and mental


This non-academic Michigan Online course presents the science and benefits of gratitude practices, including practical ways to bring it into your own life and recognition that gratitude and struggle can coexist. It’s both for anyone new to the idea of gratitude practices and for people who routinely use positive psychology in their life. 


Even though gratitude is possible and can help in those tough times, be sure to give yourself some grace when you’re not up to the practice. In this Teach-Out, you will learn how to do just that.



This engaging course through Michigan Online is a non-academic course that is designed to help you achieve the success that you desire.


Drawing on decades of scientific research, you will learn what the most successful people do differently than others, why IQ is not the most significant predictor of success (and can sometimes backfire), and why many commonly held beliefs hold people back from achieving their goals.


This toolkit was co-created by the Program for Intergroup Relations (IGR) and the Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning. It includes individual and group reflection activities that uncover the nuanced ways we arrive at our political perspectives.
