Publisher's Summary

Something revolutionary has begun. Starting with gestalt and cognitive theories, psychology began to take a new course and develop more effective ways of helping people think straight and deal with the challenges of life. However, something even more revolutionary has begun. Dr. Martin Seligman, a cognitive psychologist, has developed a psychology of wellness based on the virtues. His premise is that good mental health is founded on virtuous thinking and living. He describes the virtues as core qualities that make a person truly whole. He went outside of the realm of psychology to define the virtues and looked to philosophy and religion for guidance. He relied on Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, the Hebrew Scriptures, the New Testament, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas in listing six essential virtues: wisdom, courage, temperance, justice, transcendence, and humanity. Fr. Groeschel describes Dr. Seligman’s work in detail and shows how it offers people the best hope for a happy well-adjusted life.

Great book on virtue

I enjoyed this book, and he showed how secular psychologists looked and found the importance of virtue and looked to the church as their model.

pretty sure it's all on YouTube, but still...

I'm pretty sure I heard all this on YouTube, but still worth it. Fr. Groeschel was a prophet. Fr. Benedict Groeschel, pray for us.
