Positive psychology: Theory / Basic Research
Positive psychology aims to reveal those factors which can facilitate human flourishing, at both the individual and group levels. The special goal of this perspective is to make evidence-based studies about those ingredients which are revealed through the research on positive functioning.

Positive psychology: Applied Research
At the applied level of positive psychological studies, researchers use basic concepts and findings to reach a specific practical goal: for example to check how we can facilitate mindfulness in schools, if there is a difference in subjective well-being in various age groups, or to see which strengths have more advantages in different jobs.

Positive psychology: Practice
The practice of positive psychological findings are parallel with the academic, research-oriented side of the perspective. The aim is to use evidence-based results to help people flourishing, for example, through the development of training programs aimed at making students engage in schools, enhancing wellbeing at work, increasing positive relations in families or at developing strategies to increase flourishing in a community.
