Positive Psychology is a scientific branch of the social science of psychology that focusses on what is going right with the human mind and behaviour and how to foster these types of well-being on an individual, group and societal level. It steers away from the deficit-focus that psychology has developed in the second part of the 20th century in response to the second world war and the (focus on) mental disorders that resulted from it.
