What is positive psychology

Positive psychology is primarily concerned with health and well-being, that being what makes humans resilient, happy, optimistic, rather than focusing on the sources of psychopathologies. Positive psychology aims at taking an issue, a problem by the opposite side by looking into the positive aspect rather than the negative one.


s a branch of psychology that focuses on the positive aspects of human life and behavior, rather than on mental illness or psychological problems. It’s about understanding and fostering the factors that allow individuals and communities to thrive. Here are some key points about positive psychology:

  1. Emphasis on Positive Aspects: Unlike traditional psychology, which often deals with dysfunction and mental illness, positive psychology emphasizes positive emotions, strengths, and virtues.

  2. Well-Being and Happiness: It explores what makes life most worth living and seeks to enhance individual and collective well-being. This includes studying happiness, joy, inspiration, and love.

  3. Character Strengths and Virtues: Positive psychology often involves identifying and cultivating personal strengths and virtues, like courage, compassion, resilience, creativity, curiosity, integrity, self-knowledge, and empathy.

  4. Positive Experiences and Mindset: It looks at how positive experiences, like flow (being fully immersed and engaged in activities), and a positive mindset can impact life satisfaction and personal development.

  5. Applications: Positive psychology has been applied in various areas, including education, the workplace, clinical therapy, and self-help. It aims to improve life quality and enhance the functioning of healthy individuals.

  6. Scientific Basis: It’s grounded in rigorous research and scientific methods, aiming to study and promote positive human functioning objectively.

  7. Holistic Approach: Positive psychology doesn’t ignore the challenges and difficulties of life. Instead, it offers a more balanced perspective, recognizing that understanding the positive aspects of human experience is as important as understanding problems.
