Happiness 101: Positive Psychology


Last week in the New York Times Magazine section there was an article titled Happiness 101 by D.T. Max. In his article Max asks whether classes in positive psychology teach students not just to feel good but also to do good? The answer seemed to be “yes”. Positive psychology is “the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive” (Positive Psychology Center).
