Positive Psychology – Global

The tide of positive psychology is indeed changing since its conception in the late 1990’s (Seligman & Csikzentmihalyi, 2000). With new directions and focus as well as burgeoning courses across the globe, the area continues to develop at a rapid rate. Globally, there are dozens of major organisations that hold conferences every year, create and manage Academic journals and educate the growing number of positive psychology students whom undertake one of the 100’s of university courses within institutions across the world.
