WHAT IS POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY?
It is the applied psychology of happiness, wellbeing and flourishing. It seeks to identify approaches that lead to a life of optimal functioning; exploring the attributes, behaviours, practices, strengths and virtues that enable individuals, communities and organisations to thrive.
Where this can add value to Imposter Syndrome is in enabling people to not only come to know their greatest potential, but also to know themselves on a more human level. It can help people to become more self-accepting and self-compassionate, making room for growth.
There is no one fixed pathway to overcoming imposter type feelings, the practices that work well for one may not for another. However, this is where a field as rich and diverse as Positive Psychology can really help, as it holds a plethora of options.
