What positive psychology can help you become: Martin Seligman on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Positive psychologist Martin Seligman talks about psychology — both as a developing field of study, and as it works one-on-one with each patient and each practitioner. As it moves beyond a strict focus on curing mental disorders and dis-ease, what can modern psychology help us to become? (Recorded February 2004 in Monterey, California. Duration: 23:41.)

    Other comments are not loading, so I’m only replying to Martin’s TED talk. The bit about the three bases of happiness was one of the most helpful concepts I’ve run across. I’m somewhat in the brainy but unhappy group, inspired but isolated by asperger’s. Thanks, Martin.
