Positive psychology is the scientific study of what goes right in life, from birth to death and at all stops in between. Every life has peaks and valleys; positive psychology does not deny this valleys, but holds that: what is good about life is as genuine as what is bad and, therefore, deserves equal attention from psychologists. A Primer in Positive Psychology is thoroughly grounded in scientific research and covers major topics of concern to the field: positive experiences such as pleasure and flow; positive traits such as character strengths, values, and talents; and the social institutions that enable these subjects as well as what recent research might contribute to this knowledge. Every chapter contains exercises that illustrate positive psychology, a glossary, suggestions of articles and books for further reading, and lists of films, websites, and popular songs that embody chapter themes. A comprehensive overview of positive psychology by one of the acknowledged leaders in the field, this textbook provides students with a thorough introduction to an important area of psychology.
