Abstract and Keywords

Over the last two decades, research about and applications of positive psychology have grown considerably. From identifying constructs, to developing complex theories, to establishing evidence-based and empirically supported interventions, positive psychology has moved from early inklings of visionary scholars to a recognized, established science among a community of students and professionals worldwide. This chapter discusses three emerging areas that bridge the advances to date with challenging, yet attainable, goals for the future of positive psychology: greater balance, greater attention to children and adolescents, and further expansion globally to diverse populations. Insights from leading scholars and their views on the future of positive psychology are shared as well.

Keywords: positive psychology, balance, international, children, adolescents, well-being
