WHAT IS POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY?
It is the applied psychology of happiness, wellbeing and flourishing. This means it seeks to identify approaches that lead to a life of optimal functioning; exploring the attributes, behaviours, practices, strengths and virtues that enable individuals, families, communities and organisations to thrive. Rather than avoiding the darkness and pushing negative emotions down, a holistic view reveals how we can embrace these in more constructive ways. In this, Positive Psychology can be a pathway to wholeness.
