Reality Psychology and Reality

Psychology has moved a long way from philosophy, from which it emerged in the late nineteenth century.  Has it gone too far?

In this session we will explore whether ‘positive psychology’ which emerged in the 1990’s has moved psychology too far from reality, and whether we now need a ‘Reality Psychology’ to help take people back to who they really are.

The session is based on the presenter’s forthcoming new book :
Reality Psychology: A New Perspective on Mental Health, Wellbeing and Mindfulness
