About this title


The approach labeled “Positive Psychology” was first introduced around the year 2000, and it rapidly became very popular. More recently, the approach has been subject to growing criticism, primarily because of its tendency to ignore its historical roots, and in focusing too much on “happiness” and on the individual perspective (i.e., in ignoring the social context, humanity, and ethical considerations). Drawing on more than 35 years of teaching psychology at the college level, Dale Floody outlines a more balanced approach to positive psychology. In addition to happiness, he includes extensive coverage of such issues as prosocial behavior, serenity, mindfulness, spirituality, peace, humor, and early childhood intervention. His coverage includes both scientific (research-based) and applied (practical) considerations.

About the Author:

The author is an applied developmental psychologist (Ph.D., Rutgers University) with more than 35 years experience teaching at the college level. He is a retired professor emeritus with the University of Wisconsin Colleges, currently teaches part-time at Viterbo University because it’s fun, and he has a wide range of community and university administrative experience. Balanced Positive Psychology is his current “vital engagement” .
