Abstract
Die Positive Psychologie hat eine Steigerung von Wohlbefinden und Lebenszufriedenheit zum Ziel und basiert auf der Forderung positiver Emotionen. Werden positive Emotionen vermehrt, verbessert dies das subjektive Wohlbefinden und fuhrt zugleich zu einer Verringerung krankheitsbezogener Symptomatik. In Kapitel 12 werden Anwendungen der Positiven Psychologie im klinischen Kontext vorgestellt. Anschliesend wird eine Studie berichtet, die eine Lebenskunst-Intervention fur depressive und angstliche Jugendliche untersucht. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die Intervention insgesamt als wirkungsvoll zur Steigerung von Lebenskunst und Lebenszufriedenheit sowie zur Reduzierung negativer Symptome angesehen werden kann.

Storungsspezifische Modelle und Ressourcenorientierung erganzen sich. Ressourcenaktivierung zielt darauf ab, bereits bestehende Ressourcen fur die Erreichung der Therapieziele zu nutzen. Ressourcenorientierung hat viele Vorteile: Das Arbeitsbundnis verbessert sich, der Patient erlebt positive Emotionen in d...

Quality of life is often measured using questions about happiness. This method presumes that respondents are able to judge their life. Research suggest that this is typically the case, but this is not to say that everybody can. In that context one may doubt whether people with a mental disorder can judge their life adequately. Happiness can be rejected as a indicator for quality of life for people with mental disorders, because of affective and cognitive distortions. We therefore checked the val...

Mental health has long been defined as the absence of psychopathologies, such as depression and anxiety. The absence of mental illness, however, is a minimal outcome from a psychological perspective on lifespan development. This article therefore focuses on mental illness as well as on three core components of positive mental health: feelings of happiness and satisfaction with life (emotional well-being), positive individual functioning in terms of self-realization (psychological well-being), an...

Methods A large cohort of 5566 people completed a survey at two time points, aged 51–56 at Time 1 and 63–67 at Time 2. Positive psychological well-being included measures self-acceptance, autono...

Do positive psychology interventions—that is, treatment methods or intentional activities aimed at cultivating positive feelings, positive behaviors, or positive cognitions—enhance well-being and ameliorate depressive symptoms? A meta-analysis of 51 such interventions with 4,266 individuals was conducted to address this question and to provide practical guidance to clinicians. The results revealed that positive psychology interventions do indeed significantly enhance well-being (mean r=.29) and ...

Mental illness and its treatment are largely invisible. We use multiple publicly available data sources to evaluate changes in the well-being of Americans with mental illnesses over the past decade. We find that access to care, including specialty psychiatric and inpatient care, and financial protection have improved. However, not all people with mental health problems have shared in these improvements. Access to care among those with mental health impairments appears to have declined, and we es...
