Positran’s mission is to translate the findings of psychological research into tools to promote individual development and well-being. Yet, the ambition of your children’s is above all to have fun. This is why we have designed this psychological tool as a card game, to be as engaging and playful as possible, while awakening the player’s energy and confidence at the same time.
Character strengths are the optimal parts of our personality that capture who we really are at our best. The hallmark of apsychological strength is that it makes us feel competent, authentic and energised . The research into these 24 strengths is the scientific basis that has informed the development of this game. The strengths are represented here by 24 creatures (brilliantly designed by Charlie Bourdaud) each with a unique power.
Behind the concept of the character strengths are 6 underlying fundamental values that have been identified by Dr Seligman and Pr Peterson as part of their VIA classification, and the strengths are the ways in which the values are expressed into action.
These values are represented here by the 6 fantastical worlds to which the creatures belong:
• Wisdom and Knowledge (Water World)
• Courage (Dauntless Desert)
• Humanity and Relationships (Friendly Forest)
• Temperance (Mini World)
• Justice (Flight of Fairness)
• Transcendence (Galvanising Garden)
By encouraging the exploration of these fantastical worlds and the powers of their dwellers we encourage the identification and development of the child’s own strengths and values, and will also enable them to better recognise these strengths in others.
