This new edition retains all the features that made the first edition so popular, including Accounts of major theories and relevant research Learning objectives Chapter summaries Research and personal development questions Suggestions for further reading Measures for use in research Glossaries of new terms. The book has also been completely updated to take account of recent research and major advances, and includes a new chapter on positive psychotherapy, an extended account of research on character strengths and virtues, and a discussion of recent ground-breaking research on emotional intelligence.
