The Psychology of Happiness and Well-being is not a quick fix guide to happiness. Its main emphasis is to point out the findings on happiness studies that have withstood the rigor of 'controlled' trials. This book demonstrates that several intuitively appealing techniques that show initial promise, fail to show the benefits claimed, when put to scientific scrutiny. On a more optimistic note the author investigates a number of tried and tested techniques in the field of Positive Psychology that can actually help us feel happier, as well as techniques in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy that can improve our well-being. This book includes many practical examples as well as activities that individuals can undertake to improve their happiness and well-being. The author has a degree in Cognitive and Social Psychology as well as a degree in Mathematics and Physics. In addition he has an advanced qualification in Managing Change and has been practicing Mindfulness Meditation for 5 years.
