What enables individuals, organizations and communities to thrive? That’s the question addressed by hundreds of studies and thousands of papers in the new field of Positive Psychology (PP), also known as the science of flourishing.Positive Psychology is a new and rapidly growing field that demonstrates what individuals, organizations and communities need in order to flourish. Where traditional psychology focused on treating and fixing what was wrong in a person’s life, Positive Psychologyequips people with skills for creating and increasing their positive emotions, life satisfaction and wellbeing. While philosophers have long investigated the nature of happiness, it was not until 1998 that scientists coalesced to explore wellbeing through systematic and multi-faceted research. However, there are few organizations training individuals in this fresh knowledge and innovative set of practices.
