Recent research: five papers on feeling good & improved functioning, on meaning & wellbeing, and on happy memories,
Last updated on 3rd March 2009
I seem to be making a habit this month of focusing on a specific journal when posting the weekly report on interesting recent research. Last week it was the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology . This week it's the Journal of Positive Psychology . To quote the Journal's website: "Positive psychology is about scientifically informed perspectives on what makes life worth living. It focuses on aspects of the human condition that lead to happiness, fulfillment, and flourishing." First published in 2006, the journal initially came out quarterly. Now, in 2009, it's increasing its publication frequency to six issues a year - a pleasing sign of the increasing interest in this field.
