Existential Positive Psychology

  • Paul T. P. Wong, PhD Trent University

Abstract




Existential psychology is about human existence and the human drama of survival and flourishing. It is inherently positive because it emphasizes the courage and responsibility of confronting existential anxieties and living an authentic life. Unfortunately, the popular existential literature tends to focus on the darker side of the human condition. Existential psychology can learn from positive psychology’s scientific methods and focus on the positive.
