Positive Psychology follows the wellness model with a focus on what’s right with you. Taking you from where you are to where you want to be. Positive Psychology is not the scientific study of just happiness. It is not only about positivity. It’s about building on what’s right with you and not just fixing what’s wrong. It focuses on your Total Being.
“Positive Psychology is the scientific study of optimal human functioning. It aims to discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and communities to thrive.” (Dr. Martin Seligman 2002)
“Positive Psychology is about helping people move north of neutral.” (Dr. Christopher Peterson)
