The Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology is the seminal reference in the field of positive psychology, which in recent years has transcended academia to capture the imagination of the general public. The handbook provides a roadmap for the psychology needed by the majority of the population -- those who don't need treatment but want to achieve the lives to which they aspire.

These 65 chapters summarize all of the relevant literature in the field. The content's breadth and depth provide an unparalleled cross-disciplinary look at positive psychology from diverse fields and all branches of psychology, including social, clinical, personality, counseling, school, and developmental psychology.

Topics include not only happiness but also hope, strengths, positive emotions, life longings, creativity, emotional creativity, courage, and more, plus guidelines for applying what has worked for people across time and cultures.

Review:


"This is an excellent book on a unique approach to psychology. The international authorship helps readers see positive pyschology from many different vantage points. The book ends on a helpful note, talking about the importance of the work of therapists in helping clients and families find meaning and happiness-- a point everyone can agree on."--Doody's Health Sciences Review, a 4-star review!
