Positive Psychology Interventions

Positive psychology is the branch of psychology that uses scientific understanding and effective intervention to aid in the achievement of a satisfactory life. It is the study of happiness that examines how ordinary people can become happier and more fulfilled.

In less than a decade, positive psychology has caught the attention not only of the academic community but also the general public. One of the principle aims of Positive Psychology has been to correct this imbalance by propelling the field into supplementing its hard-won knowledge about suffering and mental illness with a great deal more knowledge about positive emotion. Positive psychology represents a commitment to the sources of psychological wellness, such as positive emotions, positive experiences, positive environments, and human strengths and virtues.

A variety of interventions have been developed to facilitate positive emotionswellbeing, growth, creativity, relationships, fulfilment, and other desirable consequences. An intervention can also be defined as “positive” if the mechanism or target outcome is a positive variable such as positive emotion, meaning, and so on. The goal of positive intervention is to give you a quick and effective way to relieve stress and anxiety that can arise during the course of everyday events.

In general psychology, interventions are actions performed to bring about change in people. A wide range of intervention strategies exist and they are directed towards various types of issues. Most generally, it means any activities used to modify behavior, emotional state, or feelings.

Positive Psychological interventions have many different applications and the most common use is for the treatment of mental disorders, most commonly using mindfulness and psychotherapy. The ultimate goal behind these interventions is not only to alleviate symptoms but also to target the root cause of mental disorders.

To treat mental disorders psychological interventions can be coupled with psychoactive medication. Psychiatrists commonly prescribe drugs to manage symptoms of mental disorders. Psychological interventions can also be used to promote good mental health in order to prevent mental disorders.
