About your teachers

This course was written by Dr Reuben Rusk and Dr Aaron Jarden. Dr Jarden will be on hand to both answer questions as you chip along, and the make fun of you or Reuben if you so desire.

A bit about Aaron.

Aaron is Head of Research at the South Australia Health and Medical Research Institutes (SAHMRI) Wellbeing and Resilience Centre, and Senior Fellow at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia.

He's got a sway of super cool credentials, such as he founded and is co-editor of the International Journal of Wellbeing, he's past president of the New Zealand Association of Positive Psychology, lead investigator for the International Wellbeing Study, co-investigator of theSovereign New Zealand Wellbeing Index, co-founder of The Tuesday Program, co-founder of Heart of Wellbeing and Scientific Director of Plus Wellbeing. We could go on, but this is a natural breaking point to stop. He is also author of four books, and many academic articles and book chapters. See here to find out more about Aaron's research and publications if you're that way inclined.

Regarding background, in addition to juggling and odd work as a plumbers labourer, he has taught tertiary level courses in Psychological Assessment, Positive Psychology, Organisational Psychology, Health Psychology and the Psychology of Stress amongst others, has worked in an organisational role of Wellbeing Manager, and describes his goal as “complete understanding of human wellbeing, why it is as it is and how it can be improved”. Dr Jarden has qualifications in psychology (MA, PhD), philosophy (BSocSci Hons, Graduate Diploma of Applied Ethics), education (Post-Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching), and computing (Diploma in Computing, MCP).
