This paper defines Positive psychology as  “the study of the conditions and processes that contribute to the flourishing or optimal functioning of people, groups, and institutions.” the movement has rapidly expanded in the past 20 years as researchers noticed how much more resources are used to study disorders and dysfunction. Positive psychology doesn’t encourage ignoring the negatives in life; it aims to study the positive or optimal functions of human existence. This includes topics such as secure attachment, optimism, love, emotional intelligence, intrinsic motivation, gratitude, forgiveness, awe, inspiration, hope, curiosity, and laughter. This is all done with the aim of one day mapping the domain of optimal human functioning.
