Positive Psychology Association of Kenya (PPAK)

Towards Flourishing Individuals and Thriving Communities in Kenya

Positive Psychology is a fast-developing approach within mainstream psychology. Since 1998, this approach has reoriented psychology to focus on wellbeing and happiness, in addition to psychology’s priority on dealing with psychological disorders. This has led to a plethora of literature capturing empirical studies, conceptual works, and intervention methods.
