Positive Psychology:

Historically, psychology has focused primarily on problems, including mental health diagnoses and treatments.  Indeed, this is important and useful research that I implement daily.  However, psychologists usually find that after treating specific problems, people are still left with the question of how to create truly fulfilled lives.  For instance, people who overcome depression often feel empty rather than happy.  Positive psychology actively seeks to develop a direction toward positive goals.  Utilizing extensive research on resiliency, character strengths, and the origins of happiness, these techniques train individuals to become truly happier.  Positive psychology was developed by Martin Seligman.  Other respected authors in the field of resiliency and happiness include Daniel Gilbert, Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein.
