About this Research Topic
However, while this strong and evidence-based body of knowledge and studies about positive psychology is a major positive factor in advancing the research in this field and bringing practical tools and insights for improving peoples’ everyday lives, this recent volume of information brings an equally vast dispersion of research across disciplines. This scattering of information can be viewed as a fragmentation problem of the essence of what Positive Psychology is, and particularly what Positive Psychology is in our daily lives. Can this “fragmentation” lead to a new set of psychological fields? Should this “fragmentation” move or return to a unified field of theory and practice? Or is this just an identification problem? How is Positive Psychology in our everyday lives, and does it matter if it is a “fragmented” or unified field? This Research Topic aims to address these questions.
Therefore, in this Research Topic, we aim to bring together the most current theory and practice regarding Positive Psychology across disciplines. This includes cutting edge ideas and research to explore multidisciplinary approaches to Positive Psychology in daily life and how these can contribute to make the field “whole” again or move forward to a new “wave” of Positive Psychology. We are interested in contributions from different fields/disciplines that have Positive Psychology and its variables as central points of discussion and research in different formats (ex. Original Research, Systematic Review, Brief Research Report, Community Case Study, Policy Brief, General Commentary).
Thus, we welcome submissions that address (but are not limited) to the following topics:
• Well-being in everyday life
• Positive Education
• Positive Tourism
• Positive Psychology in social and organizational settings (ex. Migrants, workplace, etc)
• Special needs/inclusion and the role of Positive psychology
• Positive Psychology in multidisciplinary fields, including language/communication, multiculturalism, creativity, psychometrics, and research methods, etc
• Cross-cultural studies in Positive Psychology.
