Abstract: Positive social and emotional well-being are essential for peoples' general health and quality of life. This workshop will bring together an inter-disciplinary community of well-being researchers, designers and practitioners to explore how digital technology can increase well-being by enabling users to develop new skills, build on existing personal strengths or social support, and promote self-efficacy more generally. We will jointly reach a better understanding of the opportunities that technology can bring for skills development across a broad range of contexts. Our aim is to consider how digital technology can support well-being skills for the general public and also for specific, at-need groups including the care givers of people coping with irreversible loss of mental or physical capacity and psycho-education for people experiencing mental health difficulties
