In Chap. 1 we introduced our concept art-of-living. Then we developed a questionnaire measuring art-of-living. Now we want to validate art-of-living demonstrating meaningful relationships with various constructs. We start with the relationship to well-being and flourishing which are viewed as criteria. Well-being (SWLS, AHI, SHS) and art-of-living correlate with .59, .72, .62 respectively. Then we study the relationships with personality. We want to show that there are meaningful correlations bu...

In this chapter we start with discussing ways of leading a good life. We refer to Veenhoven’s important discrimination between ways for leading a good life and the results of leading a good life, which are happiness or well-being. Then we discuss different criteria for happiness: subjective well-being, psychological well-being, eudaimonic and hedonic well-being and flourishing. We argue that the kind of criterion at least partially determines the way to happiness. Next we look at ways for leadin...

Questions concerning happiness have drawn more and more interest. In philosophy, strategies and attitudes regarding happiness were dealt with under the topic art-of-living. In our study we will try to adapt the philosophical concept of art-of-living, thus allowing empirical psychological research. The study is based on the model described in the introductory chapter, which contains the components of art-of-living. First we performed a combined qualitative and quantitative survey, then a multidim...

First, as a primary step we want to present another source that our questionnaire for art-of-living yields valid data. We want to do that by comparing diary entrances regarding art-of-living aggregated across a longer time-span with the one-time questionnaire data. Secondly, we correlate state art-of-living data with measures of actual affect, e.g. daily well-being, positive and negative affect. Thirdly, we analyze the relationship between daily events (hassles and uplifts) and state art-of-livi...

The aim of this chapter is to demonstrate that art-of-living can be changed by training the individual components. In the introduction we referred to meta-analyses with respect to positive psychology interventions and argued that the “how” and “what” of interventions deserve considerations. The “how” deals with the delivery “for whom”, follow-up studies, and support of the transfer of the intervention, the “what” emphasizes that combinations of single interventions were needed. We derive our int...

Teacher competence is crucial for quality of teaching and learner achievement. Competency models and competence measurement are prevalent in domains such as the natural sciences and lacking in others. We conducted our research in the field of business and economics education by focusing on the accounting domain because it is key to a deep understanding of the economic context and the development of economics competence. To teach well, teachers require professional knowledge, which is mainly comp...

Counseling parents in supporting their children’s learning processes is increasingly emphasized in research on parental involvement and teacher professionalization as a central task of teachers. However, to date there have been few approaches of developing theoretical or psychometric models that describe the internal structure of teachers’ counseling competence in terms of specific skills and abilities as well as of explaining inter-individual differences. The purpose of the current study was to...

As teacher training plays a major role in the development of (prospective) teachers’ knowledge, differences between the professional knowledge of prospective teachers at Austrian and German universities were examined in the current study. The teacher training systems of business and economic education in both countries differ substantially regarding structure and content. The German system consists of two consecutive phases with different foci (university education with an emphasis on theories a...
