Until about the past decade, psychology and psychiatry have tended to focus on pathology – what is going wrong with people and why. Recently, however, there has been a new movement in the field spearheaded by psychologists such as Dr. Martin Seligman and Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, that focuses on what makes people happy and why. The research within the field of positive psychology provides a wealth of data on strategies and behaviors (e.g., exercise, charitable deeds, learning to forgive) that tend to elicit a sense of fulfillment and positive emotional states. In therapy, clients learn how to choose behaviors that tend to engender happiness. Oftentimes, these are activities that clients do occasionally in the present or once did in the past but are not aware of how beneficial these behaviors are. By learning to incorporate more positive behaviors in their lifestyle, clients can directly combat negative moods such as depression and anxiety.
