Positive psychology is both a scientifi c and a clinical enterprise. Within positive psychology, the scientifi c method is used to understand and enhance positive aspects of life. Positive psychology is concerned with understanding and facilitating:
1 happiness and well-being; 2 positive traits and engagement in absorbing activities; and
3 the development of meaningful positive relationships, social systems, and institutions (Lopez & Snyder, 2009; Seligman, 2002).
