NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The father of positive psychology draws on more than twenty years of clinical research to show you how to overcome depression, boost your immune system, and make yourself happier.
"Vaulted me out of my funk.... So, fellow moderate pessimists, go buy this book." —The New York Times Book Review
Offering many simple techniques anyone can practice, Dr. Seligman explains how to break an “I–give–up” habit, develop a more constructive explanatory style for interpreting your behavior, and experience the benefits of a more positive interior dialogue.
With generous additional advice on how to encourage optimistic behavior at school, at work and in children, Learned Optimism is both profound and practical—and valuable for every phase of life.
'A practical map for a flourishing life' (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence)
In this groundbreaking, heart-lifting and deeply useful book, Martin Seligman, internationally esteemed psychologist and the father of Positive Psychology, shows us that happiness can be learned and cultivated.
Using many years of in-depth psychological research he lays out the 24 strengths and virtues unique to the human psyche and teaches you how to identify the ones you possess. By calling upon your signature strengths, you will not only develop natural buffers against misfortune and negative emotion, but also improve the world around you - at work, in love and in raising children - achieving new and sustainable contentment, joy and meaning.
From the bestselling author of Authentic Happiness
In The Optimistic Child, Dr. Martin Seligman offers parents, teachers and coaches a well-validated program to prevent depression in children. Seligman shows adults how to teach children the skills of optimism that can help them combat sadness, achieve more on the playing field and at school and improve their physical health.
Learning the skills of optimism not only reduces the risk of depression but boosts school performance and provides children with the self-reliance they need as they approach the teenage years and beyond.
Filled with practical advice and written in clear, helpful language, this book is an invaluable resource for people who want to open up the world for children.
With this unprecedented promise, internationally esteemed psychologist Martin Seligman begins Flourish, his first book in ten years—and the first to present his dynamic new concept of what well-being really is. Traditionally, the goal of psychology has been to relieve human suffering, but the goal of the Positive Psychology movement, which Dr. Seligman has led for fifteen years, is different—it’s about actually raising the bar for the human condition.
Flourish builds on Dr. Seligman’s game-changing work on optimism, motivation, and character to show how to get the most out of life, unveiling an electrifying new theory of what makes a good life—for individuals, for communities, and for nations. In a fascinating evolution of thought and practice, Flourish refines what Positive Psychology is all about.
While certainly a part of well-being, happiness alone doesn’t give life meaning. Seligman now asks, What is it that enables you to cultivate your talents, to build deep, lasting relationships with others, to feel pleasure, and to contribute meaningfully to the world? In a word, what is it that allows you to flourish? “Well-being” takes the stage front and center, and Happiness (or Positive Emotion) becomes one of the five pillars of Positive Psychology, along with Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment—or PERMA, the permanent building blocks for a life of profound fulfillment.
Thought-provoking in its implications for education, economics, therapy, medicine, and public policy—the very fabric of society—Flourish tells inspiring stories of Positive Psychology in action, including how the entire U.S. Army is now trained in emotional resilience; how innovative schools can educate for fulfillment in life and not just for workplace success; and how corporations can improve performance at the same time as they raise employee well-being.
With interactive exercises to help readers explore their own attitudes and aims, Flourish is a watershed in the understanding of happiness as well as a tool for getting the most out of life. On the cutting edge of a science that has changed millions of lives, Dr. Seligman now creates the ultimate extension and capstone of his bestselling classics, Authentic Happiness and Learned Optimism.
One of the most important psychologists alive today tells the story of the transformation of modern psychology through the lens of his own career and change of heart.
Martin E. P. Seligman is one of the most decorated and popular psychologists of his generation. When he first encountered the discipline in the 1960s, it was devoted to eliminating misery: the science of how past trauma creates present symptoms. Today, thanks in large part to Seligman's own work pioneering the Positive Psychology movement, it is ever more focused on the bright side; gratitude, resilience, and hope.
In this his memoir, Seligman recounts how he learned to study optimism; including a life-changing conversation with his five-year-old daughter. In wise, eloquent prose, Seligman tells the human stories behind some of his major findings. He recounts developing CAVE, an analytical tool that predicts election outcomes (with shocking accuracy) based on the language used in campaign speeches, and the canonical studies that birthed the theory of learned helplessness - which he now reveals was incorrect. And he writes at length for the first time about his own battles with depression at a young age.
All the while, Seligman works out his theory of psychology, making a compelling and deeply personal case for the importance of virtues like hope, anticipation, gratitude, and wisdom for our mental health. You will walk away from this book not just educated but deeply enriched.
Wissenschaftliche Studien bescheinigen der Positiven Psychologie enorme Effizienz beim Einsatz in Wirtschaft, Erziehung, Therapie und Politik. Aber auch im Coaching stößt die Positive Psychologie auf große Resonanz, auch hier sind die einfach zu handhabenden Interventionen sehr alltagstauglich.
Die Kernfrage lautet: Was verhilft uns zu einem geglückten Leben? Für den Pionier und Mitbegründer der Positiven Psychologie Martin Seligman basieren Glück und Wohlbefinden auf fünf Säulen: Positive Emotionen spüren, Engagement bringen, statt sich v.a. um sich selbst zu drehen, Beziehungen und Verbundensein mit anderen Menschen, Sinn im Leben erkennen und etwas leisten und Kompetenz entwickeln. In der englischen Version ergeben die Anfangsbuchstaben dieser fünf Säulen ein gutes Merkwort: PERMA.

Martin Seligman: Der Sigmund Freud des 21. Jahrhunderts
»Das optimistische Manifest« (New Scientist) endlich auf Deutsch!
De acordo com Martin E. P. Seligman, eminente pesquisador da psique humana e fundador da psicologia positiva, não basta acabarmos com o sofrimento para sermos felizes, e sim descobrirmos o que há de melhor dentro de nós. O autor nos ensina que a felicidade pode ser cultivada, desde que saibamos utilizar alguns traços e qualidades que já possuímos, como bondade, originalidade, humor, otimismo e generosidade. Lançando mão de nossas "forças pessoais" em todos os setores fundamentais da vida, desenvolvemos amortecedores naturais contra a infelicidade e as emoções negativas.
Neste livro claro e acessível, o autor nos mostra que é possível sermos mais felizes, sentirmos mais bem-estar, termos maiores ambições e, provavelmente, darmos mais risada. É um construtivo debate sobre a natureza da felicidade.

En este libro, Seligman nos provee de las herramientas para identificar nuestros aspectos más positivos y desarrollarlos, a fin de mejorar sensiblemente nuestra vida y las de los que nos rodean.
En lugar de centrarse, como la psicología tradicional, en el estudio y tratamiento de la enfermedad mental, la Psicología Positiva pone el foco en las fortalezas humanas, las que nos permiten aprender, disfrutar, ser alegres, generosos, solidarios y optimistas.
El doctor Martin E. P. Seligman, eminente investigador de la psique humana y fundador de esta corriente científica, sostiene que la auténtica felicidad no sólo es posible, sino que -lejos de depender de la suerte y de los genes- puede cultivarse identificando y utilizando muchas de las fortalezas y rasgos que ya poseemos.
«Por fin la psicología se toma en serio el optimismo, la diversión y la felicidad.»
Daniel Goleman, autor de La inteligencia emocional
Much of the history of psychology has been dominated by a framework in which people's behavior is driven by past history (memory) and present circumstances (perception and motivation). Homo Prospectus reassesses this idea, pushing focus to the future front and center and opening discussion of a new field of Psychology and Neuroscience.
The authors delve into four modes in which prospection operates: the implicit mind, deliberate thought, mind-wandering, and collective (social) imagination. They then explore prospection's role in some of life's most enduring questions: Why do people think about the future? Do we have free will? What is the nature of intuition, and how might it function in ethics? How does emotion function in human psychology? Is there a common causal process in different psychopathologies? Does our creativity change with age?
In this remarkable convergence of research in philosophy, statistics, decision theory, psychology, and neuroscience, Homo Prospectus shows how human prospection fundamentally reshapes our understanding of key cognitive processes, thereby improving individual and social functioning. It aims to galvanize interest in this new science from scholars in psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy, as well as an educated public curious about what makes humanity what it is.
A nova ciência das emoções positivas, da compreensão da felicidade e do bem-estar.
Autor do best-seller Felicidade Autêntica e líder por 15 anos de um movimento de propagação da psicologia positiva nos Estados Unidos, o psicólogo Martin E. P. Seligman apresenta agora uma nova e revolucionária tese sobre o tema, partindo do princípio de que a psicologia deve ir além do alívio do sofrimento humano e buscar também elevar a qualidade de vida individual e coletiva. Além do papel de tratar psicopatias e estados psicológicos negativos, a psicologia também teria importante contribuição a dar para o desenvolvimento pessoal dos indivíduos, comunidades e nações inteiras.
A felicidade, alerta Seligman, faz parte do bem-estar, mas só ela não dá sentido à vida. Ao contrário do que prega o senso comum, a felicidade não é tudo que devemos buscar na existência. Ela é apenas um dos cinco pilares que sustentam o nosso bem-estar. Os outros quatro são Engajamento, Relacionamentos, Sentido e Realização.
A partir desses conceitos, o autor instiga os leitores a avaliar que elementos presentes em suas vidas podem fazer com que cultivem seus talentos e construam relacionamentos profundos, ou sintam prazer em contribuir para o mundo. O resultado desse tipo de avaliação é o que faz uma pessoa "florescer".
