Groundbreaking new research from Martin Seligman, PhD suggests that we can help our clients, communities, loved ones, and society at large to flourish not merely alleviate suffering. Positive psychological models focus upon helping human beings to not merely overcome adversity and lessen suffering but to truly thrive and live fuller, more meanigful lives. The pillars of this model are positive emotion, life/community engagement, development of relationships/relatedness, development of meaning, and accomplishment (personally defined) can become the “new” focus in our work with clients. Application of such a model within therapy can help not only to alleviate suffering but more importantly help our clients thrive!
