Positive Psychology



Positive psychology is a form of psychology that emphasizes the positive aspects of a person’s life which enable them to thrive, such as character strengths, resilience, optimistic emotions, and positive coping strategies. It focuses on encouraging an individual to nurture their personal strengths as opposed to scolding them into fixing their deficiencies. While the focus of this branch of psychology is on promoting positive states of being, it does not recommend completely negating difficult or less desirable emotional states; rather, it asserts that people who promote their own strengths of character are better equipped to handle the inevitable fluctuations of life with more resilience.
