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||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||ACM||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Wellbeing;Education;Communication;Positive psychology;Social care;Skills development||DOI:||10.1145/2702613.2702654||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Seoul, Korea, 18-23 April, 2015|
