Abstract and Keywords

Although the work of positive psychology theory development and practice has accelerated over the past 10 years, limited conceptualization and application of this knowledge base has occurred for children and adolescents. Despite the high interest in various emerging areas of positive psychology and the promising results of adult studies, research has yet to establish a foundation of work within positive psychology for use in school- or clinic-based interventions with targeted groups such as children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. This chapter provides a context for notable recent developments in the field, as well as for existing knowledge and practice with internalizing and externalizing students, and concludes with recommendations for future research.

Keywords: positive psychology, children, adolescents, emotional and behavioral disorders, internalizing, externalizing, interventions
