This article was the most interesting of our weekly readings thus far. It did have relevant points when it spoke of how positive psychology had been phased out for a while. The focus was one the already damaged and ill when we should have been focusing on promoting strength and talent.
The article mentions that optimism is healthy and may protect from illness. This is interesting because I have seen this in my life. The people who focus on the brighter points of life tend to feel less effects of what inflicts them. Positive psychology is worth the investigation and time investment. we need to focus on not only repairing damage but also preventing it.
