2010 Positieve psychologie: Haarlemmer olie of wondermiddel? Forum Psychologie en Gezondheid, reactie op Walburg



Version: 1.1


The merits of positive psychology, a response to JanWalburg JanWalburg sums up interesting examples of successful positive psychology interventions that enhance happiness. I argue that the examples are very worthwhile, but that positive psychology could gain credibility by paying more attention to the limits of its possibilities. Positive psychology should make it clear who do not need help or perhaps cannot be helped, and should also investigate when quality of life can better be enhanced by non-psychological interventions.
