The Programme further emphasised that these concepts should apply with the same scope and urgency to all countries, regardless of their level of development.
Authors Co-authored with Sandi Roy, M. First, it identifies the fundamental problems of elitism and scientism, which permeate and negatively impact PP research and applications. Second, it critiques the conceptual and methodological limitations of PP and PPIs, providing specific examples.
Third, it critiques specific problems in PPIs. Finally, this chapter proposes second wave PP PP 2. The aim of PP 2. This raises a question in the minds of PP practitioners and enthusiasts: Is the field spearheaded by Seligman and Csikszentmihalyi on its last legs?
Has the domain been over-used for commercial interests, especially for the field of positive coaching? Does this predict the emerging of a new form of PP?
Defined in simplest terms, PP 2. It can be argued that the persistent criticism of PP is closely related to the very strategy responsible for its success.
With Seligman as the chief supported by three lieutenants, this network was a blatantly by-invitation-only elitist, hierarchical group. Given the high-profile of the members of this group, this strategy of promoting PP was immediately effective and impactful with the support of big money and big names Wong, b.
However, Brown, Sokal, and Friedman demonstrated that there was actually no empirical support for this so-called ratio. It appears that, until editors are willing to submit PP papers to critical review by experts outside the PP community, there will continue to be PP publications with serious deficiencies.
This issue of citation amnesia becomes especially problematic when positive psychologists investigate topics related to existential psychology. Given that science by nature is incremental and integrative, it is neither scholarly nor ethical for PP researchers to only focus on recent publications by members of the PP community as if they have created a new science and the older work is not worth reading.
Such a myopic view of the literature is partially responsible for the backlash against PP; most researchers would react negatively if a positive psychologist failed to cite their prior work and claimed to have discovered something new.
The Problem of Scientism The second fundamental problem with PP is scientism—the belief that the positivist paradigm of the scientific method is the only way to examine truth claims and the only good and trustworthy method to achieve happiness, well-being, and flourishing.
Such belief in scientism amounts to fantasy and is detrimental to scientific progress Durston, Unfortunately, many of these studies cannot be replicated, and their findings often have little relevance to human needs because their measuring instruments lack construct validity Biswas-Diener, ; Tavris, The division and bitter debates that ensued have hindered the progress of PP; only recently have there been hopeful signs that this divide can be healed with the development of the more inclusive PP 2.
Ironically, the commercialization of PP and the proliferation of self-help books by positive psychologists and practitioners are far worse than the commercialization of humanistic psychology, as derided by Seligman and Csikszentmihalyi. What makes it worse is not only the large scale of it, but also the marketing of pseudoscience in the name of science Coyne, Recently, Wong, Ivtzan, and Lomas in press have pointed out the ways in which scientism and the uncritical applications of PP findings to organizations are counterproductive.
An implicit culture of scientism permeates every aspect of the PP community, from research to practice. Many positive coaches use science as their calling card, when they have little understanding or training in scientific research in psychology.IMPORTANCE OF MEDIA IN SOCIAL AWARENESS The media has got a vital role in molding a good society to develop our lifestyle and move it on the right path, because it always try to side with the truth and relevant factor.
