Positive Psychology is a scientific study of optimal human functioning and flourishing. Many branches of Psychology focus on the ‘disease model’ and concentrate on treating individuals who are undergoing difficult situations. Positive psychology, on the other hand, focuses on factors that enable individuals and communities to thrive and build the best in life.
