The book leads systematically through the 6 virtues and 24 strengths that the founding fathers of positive psychology, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Christopher Peterson, and Martin Seligman, found to be nearly universal across cultures. In each case the authors look at: Key Concepts, Relevant Research, an Exemplar from a key movie, other movie portrayals (including international cinema), Antitheses, Key Enablers and Inhibitors, Practical Applications, and Summary. Readers or classes are invited to consider key issues - and the book also provides a syllabus for positive psychology courses based on movies. Positive Psychology at the Movies is uniquely suited for: (1) individuals or groups wanting to understand the concepts of positive psychology and thus improve their own lives; and (2) for teaching the concepts and practical benefits of positive psychology, in university/college, at work, during counselling or coaching, and in other settings.
