PP in the Health sector

While traditional psychology often takes a focused view of mental illness and its treatment, Positive Psychology focuses on promoting human strengths and the pursuit of prosperity and happiness. This shift in perspective is having an increasingly noticeable impact on health care. It complements conventional medical and therapeutic approaches by emphasising the importance of psychological well-being, resilience and positive emotions to overall health. From prevention and treatment to patient and staff care, Positive Psychology offers innovative approaches that have the potential to make lasting improvements to healthcare.
