5. Required Text: Peterson, C. (2006). A Primer in Positive Psychology. New York: Oxford University Press. This will be a background text for the class. Research Articles: In addition, each week Chris will email you the most relevant research articles for the next week's class. They'll come as a PDF attachment which you can easily open and print out.

6. Class Web Site. There will be a password protected class web site. In advance of each session, we'll post Chris' power points for the next class in multiple formats. Well also post Chris' special lecture notes in advance of each class. And after each session, you'll be able to listen to online or to download a digital recording of that class to your computer, MP3 player (eg your iPod). Thus, when you have a conflict with a particular class, you won't miss a thing. For the Authentic Happiness Coaching™ Program, some students had ongoing conflicts and listened to the entire class by recording. This will be an option for you as well.

7. Prerequisites: None. While Chris' Master Class, "Positive Psychology Immersion 1--North of Neutral", is a natural partner to this class, it is not required. This MentorCoach Master Class is open to the public.

8. Attendance. Attendance is optional and there are no required papers or exams. To receive a Certificate of Program Completion, CEUs, ICF CCEs, or credit toward MentorCoach or ICF Certification, you must be present for 80% of the classes. That translates to you must be present seven of the eight classes. To take attendance, we'll give out a one-word clue at the beginning and end of every class. You'll email us that code to document your presence in the class.

9. Certification: Yes. (The CEU fee applies only if you are a licensed mental health professional in the US and need CEUs from the American Psychological Association, National Board of Professional Counselors, or National Association of Social Workers. Otherwise, do not register for it.) Counts eight (8) hours toward MentorCoach® and International Coach Federation Certification. Again, to receive credit for certification, students must be counted present for seven of the eight classes. Attendance at the actual class is documented by the student emailing in two one-word clues that are given out during the class; they must be emailed in within 24 hours of the class ending. Listening to the class by recording does not count toward the attendance requirement for certification.

10. CEUs: Yes. Provides eight (8) hours of CEUs for Psychologists (APA), Social Workers (NASW), Licensed Professional Counselors (NBCC) and, in California, for Marriage and Family Therapists. Internationally, meets criteria for eight (8) hours of Coach Continuing Education with the International Coach Federation. To receive credit for CEUs, students must be present for seven of the eight classes. Attendance at the actual class is documented by the student emailing in two one-word clues that are given out during the class; they must be emailed in within 24 hours of the class ending. Listening to the class by recording does not count toward the attendance requirement for receiving CEUs.

11. Enrollment Cap: Enrollment will be capped and the class will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

12. Refund Policy. You may withdraw your registration at any time before the beginning of the second one hour class and receive a full refund. You are responsible for the full tuition amount if you do not withdraw before the beginning of the second class.
