Aussie journo’s take on positive psychology
You’ve got to love the Australian approach to life. Here’s an article about a new ‘Happiness Institute’ that has just been set up in Sydney. Central to their approach is the new area of positive psychology, drawn from the works of Martin Seligman. The head of this institute is Dr Timothy Sharp, a clinical psychologist for ten years who has been working at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital in the Pain Management and Research Centre. And is our author excited to meet the good doctor? The answer comes in paragraph two: “I thought he’d be a tosser.” Not strong on the psychology but a fun article nevertheless.
