Traditionally clinical psychology has been about alleviating emotional distress and learning to cope with clinical disorders, for example depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse etc. In the last few years, there has been an acknowledgement by psychologists and others that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, it is about finding out about what makes us healthy, fulfilled and focussed on well-being. Positive psychology provides a scientific framework for the study of human potential and happiness.
