Positive psychology, or the field of psychology that focuses on enhancing the positive aspects of the human experience, is the name of this new and daring offshoot of mainstream psychology. The historical context, methods and uses of this practice are as numerous as they are noteworthy, as they are part of history in the making.
Positive psychologists may describe their mission as a collective effort to correlate happiness with constructive, healthy life events and to educate people about how they can achieve their own happiness, or as Maslow would say, self-actualization. These studies basically aim to document the subjective and objective feelings associated with life events to sharpen the understanding as to what exactly about working, spending money and starting a family is so gratifying.
Like almost all other scientists, positive psychologists rely on empirical data obtained through surveying and research to support these correlations and practices. Aside from casual observation, neuroscience also lends insight to euphoric reactions and what causes them through brain imaging.
