Book Review: 201 Positive Psychology Applications By Fredrike Bannink

Book Review: 201 Positive Psychology Applications“You just need to be more positive and look on the bright side.” Unfortunately, anyone who has ever experienced depression has probably received this misguided advice of recovery through positive-thinking. 
As a result, the title of the book 201 Positive Psychology Applications may dissuade people who assume that it’s just another overly simplistic guide to “think happy thoughts” and things will get better.

Through the practice of self-compassion, people may even become more motivated because they’re more willing to make mistakes.
