Experiential Processing and the Integration of Bright and Dark Sides of the Human Psyche

This chapter argues that the field of positive psychology will benefit by expanding beyond a focus on positive states and traits, for the fundamental reason that the human mind has a basic, ongoing vulnerability to suffering. It presents an approach to positive psychology that is founded upon an accounting of the full range of human cognitive and emotional experience. In doing so, it shows that the fundamental human capacity to see how mental states of all sorts arise, how they are experienced, and how they influence the self and others, can enable an integration of psychological experience and behavior that helps to provide a stable platform for well-being.
