Is your Psychology Positive?

This is a fitting video to start this resource page: It served as my introduction, in 2008, to the field of Positive Psychology. In it, Martin Seligman briefly shares his views on the state of psychology and the emergence of the field he has been a leading proponent of for several decades.

‘’psychology should be just as concerned with human strength as it is with weakness. It should be just as concerned with building strength as with repairing damage. It should be interested in the best things in life. And it should be just as concerned with making the lives of normal people fulfilling, and with genius, with nurturing high talent’’

Martin Seligman, 2008

Seligman’s quote above is entirely consistent with the approach of Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy: the future is both changeable and negotiable.

If you would like a transcript of this video, just ask.

Ask yourself – How will I begin today to use the power of words to benefit my life? What will I do to ensure the language I use has the maximum effect…starting now?
