Positive Psychology can been seen as a scientific revolution. With its arrival the landscape of the discipline has changed forever.
Human strenghts, happiness, positive emotions, wisdom, creativity, love, forgiveness, optimism, personal growth, humor, just to name a few, were traditionally distinct research domains, far from central to psychological endeavors, if not viewed through the lens of psychopathology.
Positive Psychology is the study of what makes live worth living; it is the study of conditions and processes that lead to optimal functioning.
