|Title:||Book review of Linley, A. & Joseph, S. (2004) Positive Psychology in Practice||Authors:||Carr, Alan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6337||Date:||Oct-2006||Abstract:||In the preface to this volume Martin Seligman notes that ‘the scientific psychological literature of the 20th century is littered with well-done analytic science that applied to nothing at all, and this is a fate positive psychology must avoid.’ Alex Linley and Stephen Joseph in their volume Positive Psychology Practice have taken an important step in diverting positive psychology from this undesirable fate. They have edited a compendium of scholarly chapters on practical applications of the science of positive psychology to important social issues.||Type of material:||Review||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Journal:||Journal of Positive Psychology||Volume:||1||Issue:||3||Start page:||171||End page:||172||Copyright (published version):||2006 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Positive psychology; Clinical psychology; Mindfulness; Happiness||DOI:||10.1080/17439760600619377||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
