Positive psychology focuses on growth and well -being. While other branches of psychology tend to focus on dysfunction and abnormal behavior, positive psychology is centered on helping people thrive and become happier and more productive. At its core, positive psychology is the belief that people actively seek and inherently desire happiness.
How that happiness plays out (whether through financial success; a fulfilling career; the upbringing of a family; love; stability; or freedom) is different from person to person. In his research, Dr. Martin Seligman, a leader in the positive psychology movement, identified the positive personal strengths that move people toward their ideals of happiness: courage, social skills, a good work ethic, honesty, optimism, perseverance and hope. Positive psychology offers strategies to help people develop and enhance these personal strengths.
