Don’t find out what’s wrong with you, find out how to maintain and enhance the positive aspects of your life.

This is the new thinking in psychology. As psychology moves away from a disease model, psychologists are increasingly concerned with human strengths and how to nurture high function.

Positive psychology is more about creating flow and meaning in your life for long term life satisfaction and less about increasing the happy happy joy joy kind of positive emotions.

This website is useful as a resource for videos and articles about positive psychology.The center, directed by Martin Seligman, “promotes research, training, education, and the dissemination of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.”
