Wissing, MP , Potgieter, JC , Guse, T , Khumalo, IP , Nel, L0


Positive psychology is a vibrantly developing scientific field. It provides a fresh look at human behaviour and the promotion of well-being; covering a magnitude of topics related to feeling good; functioning well; being true to our own values; and growing from both positive and negative life experiences. Towards flourishing: embracing well-being in diverse contexts reflects on what harmony; peace and balance on an individual; group and societal level may mean and how these can promote well-being. Towards flourishing: embracing well-being in diverse contexts is an update and extension of the first edition Towards flourishing: contextualising positive psychology. It highlights the developments and changes in the field of positive psychology during the past decade; with particular reference to the newly emerging Third Wave (P3.0). It also includes findings from the newly developing field of multidisciplinary well-being studies as well as other quality-of-life studies enhancing well-being in diverse contexts.
