Wyatt, PhD A1 Seligman, Martin E. P., Wyatt, Randall C., Yalom, Victor., PB Alexander Street Press PP [Place of publication not identified] YR 2009 AB In this interview by Randall C. Wyatt, Dr. Seligman emphasizes that happiness is not just the absence of disorder, as "psychology as usual" might contend. Rather, happiness derives from an execution of our signature strengths. Seligman demonstrates a new set of rigorously tested interventions that lastingly increase happiness while decreasing depression. Seligman discusses his predecessors Maslow, Rogers, and Beck, what he took from them, and what he changed. He proposes new questions and explains how easy, enormously fun and important techniques can be grafted on to therapy with all clients to help them live a more engaged, meaningful, and thus happier life.
