Character strengths and virtues: A handbook and classification

Seligmann and Peterson laid the foundation for the immensely important field of Positive Psychology. This Handbook provides an extensive, research-based discussion of positive character traits, Including an explication of a short-list of the character strengths the authors believe are key to individual development for leading a positive, fulfilling life. The research work of 55 social scientists forms the basis of the VIA classification and inventory tool of character strengths. More information about VIA and a free (and fun!) survey of one’s own charcter strengths is available. Get the complete summery of the handbook here.
