Positive Psychology is the branch of psychology dealing with the factors that help us to lead the ‘good life’. If you start with the principle that living a fulfilling life can be studied and the resulting principles used to facilitate the ‘good life’ then you’ll be interested in this branch of science. Positive Psychology is an integral part of the ‘Health and Wellbeing’ movement. The Master of Applied Positive Psychology Program (MAPP) have produced the Positive Psychology Quarterly Journal. There are two issues at the time of writing
The e-Journal is well-designed and features a number of articles about Positive Psychology with contributors ranging from lecturers to students from the course. The articles tackle subjects ranging from the future of Positive Psychology through to a survey of participants in MAPP UK. The articles are very accessible and offer a valuable Positive Psychology resource.
