9780230242937: Positive Psychology: A Critical Introduction

Happiness is fundamental to how we live our lives, but the meaning of happiness remains as contentious as it did when it was first debated thousands of years ago.

Taking a critical approach to the subject, Positive Psychology investigates the debates that have shaped the psychological discussion of happiness, from theories of well-being to examining how psychotherapy can help foster positive mental health. Offering contrasting perspectives on each topic and examining a range of classic and contemporary research, this book encourages you to engage with positive psychology in a critical way while considering how the theory applies to our everyday lives.

Whether you are new to the subject or want to develop your understanding of the complexities of the field, this lively and engaging introduction will enhance your knowledge not just of positive psychology, but of what happiness and well-being mean to you.

An excellent, readable introduction to positive psychology for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, with interesting and innovative coverage of the relationship between happiness and personality.' - John Parkinson, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Bangor University, UK
