9780195182798: Handbook of Positive Psychology

Psychology has long been enamored of the dark side of human existence, rarely exploring a more positive view of the mind. What has psychology contributed, for example, to our understanding of the various human virtues? Regrettably, not much. The last decade, however, has witnessed a growing movement to abandon the exclusive focus on the negative. Psychologists from several subdisciplines are now asking an intriguing question: "What strengths does a person employ to deal effectively with life?"

The Handbook of Positive Psychology provides a forum for a more positive view of the human condition. In its pages, readers are treated to an analysis of what the foremost experts believe to be the fundamental strengths of humankind. Both seasoned professionals and students just entering the field are eager to grasp the power and vitality of the human spirit as it faces a multitude of life challenges. The Handbook is the first systematic attempt to bring together leading scholars to give voice to the emerging field of positive psychology.

Review:

"It is not often, if ever, that one is able to witness a scientific revolution. However, that privilege may have been allowed readers of the Handbook of Positive Psychology. With its publication positive psychology has arrived, and the landscape of our discipline may have changed for ever. Human strengths, happiness, positive emotions, wisdom, creativity, love, forgiveness, optimism, personal growth, humour (to name but a few) were traditionally distinct research domains--far from central to psychological endeavours, if not viewed through the lens of psychopathology. However, with the advent of the Handbook, they have found themselves a new home. [T]he Handbook should be considered essential reading for all those interested in positive psychology. As Snyder quotes a fellow passenger on a plane once saying to him: 'Positive psychology, that's a good way to spend your time.' Having read the Handbook, I can only agree, and urge others to do the same."--The Psychologist

"Psychology has long been enamored of the dark side of human existence, rarely exploring a more positive view of the mind. What has psychology contributed, for example, to our understanding of the various human virtues? Regrettably, not much. ... The Handbook of Positive Psychology provides a forum for a more positive view of the human condition. It examines positive subjective experiences, cognitive constructs about the future, and the capacity for courage, aesthetic sensibility, creativity, perseverance, altruism, tolerance, and wisdom at the individual and group levels. It offers chapters that examine the fundamental strengths of humankind; emotion-focused, self-based, cognitive-focused, interpersonal, and biological approaches to this new psychology; approaches for use with special populations and settings (children, the elderly, the physically disabled); and a chapter in which the experts looks [sic] to the future."--Adolescence
