Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology is a relatively new branch of applied psychology started in 1998 by Martin Seligman and Mikhaly Csikszentmihalyi. This field seeks to “seeks to nurture genius and talent” rather than focusing solely on the treatment of mental illness as a means of making human existence more rewarding and fulfilling. The founders of this movement do not intend to replace traditional psychology, but to expand it through the encouragement of positive traits, relationships and institutions.
