The Centre for Research in Human Flourishing (CRHF) was established in 2015 to study the processes and outcomes of optimal functioning, with particular interests in well-being, human potential, agency and autonomy, mindfulness, character strengths, social behaviour and human systems.
The centre adopts an interdisciplinary approach to understanding adversity and the nature of social environments that inhibit human flourishing as well as those that best nurture its development. We are interested in how this knowledge can be applied to foster resilience, personal and professional growth and well-being in policy and practice. The CRHF is committed to education as personal growth and maximising the potential for people to thrive.

At the heart of our activities is a humanising and compassionate approach towards identifying, developing and supporting the processes that enable human flourishing.
Our research aims to inform educators, leaders, counsellors and other helping professionals in education, social work and health services by influencing policy development, training and practice.
