The Encyclopedia of Positive Psychology

Positive psychology, the pursuit of understanding optimal human functioning, is reshaping the scholarly and public views of how we see the science of psychology and is shining a spotlight on the potency of human strengths and positive emotions. The Encyclopedia of Positive Psychology provides a comprehensive and accessible summary of this area of scholarship and practice.

With 288 specially commissioned entries written by 150 leading international researchers, educators, and practitioners in positive psychology, this groundbreaking encyclopedia is well organized, engaging, and instructive. It presents the most current, extensive, and accessible treatment of the subject available to students, teachers, practitioners, business people, and policy makers.

Experts will consider this a quick reference to the topics that are part and parcel of their daily work and non-experts will appreciate the topical primer designed to clarify basic constructs and processes associated with positive psychology.
