A good introduction (10 points)

Explain the significance of your creative title and your understanding of psychological well-being based on the Ryff Scale.

The Ryff Scales of Psychological Well-Being.

The Ryff Scales of Psychological Well-Being is a theoretically grounded instrument that specifically focuses on measuring multiple facets of psychological well-being. These facets include the following:

· self-acceptance

· the establishment of quality ties to other

· a sense of autonomy in thought and action

· the ability to manage complex environments to suit personal needs and values

· the pursuit of meaningful goals and a sense of purpose in life

· continued growth and development as a person 

Pick 7 Principles from the movie or the book and show how each of these principles can help one’s psychological well-being. Write each principle as a separate subsection. Make sure that each principle reflects some aspects of the Ryff Scale (70 points).

A good conclusion (15 points)
