Abstract Positive Psychology principles have revolutionized the field of mental health and also altered our views on human evolution, nature and needs and character and capacities. Positive Psychology is a rather newer branch of Psychology that focuses on human flourishing, improvement of quality of life and wellbeing and enhancements of strengths. This is a complementary strategy utilized for the treatment and promotion of mental health. As positive psychology aims to strike a balance between the age old notion of treatment of mental disorders and the contemporary trend of enhancement of wellbeing and qualities, it proves to be a perfect choice for a holistic treatment regime.
According to the New Education Policy, the scope of education has expanded beyond textbook knowledge to the holistic development of the child. This notion puts forth the need to employ methods that help to enhance the wellbeing of students within and outside classroom. Education now bears the responsibility to generate a generation of individuals who are not only academically well versed but also practically and emotionally equipped to take up their roles as responsible citizens.
The use of positive psychology interventions has shown numerous benefits especially in the field of schooling and education, among children and adolescents. The current paper intends to throw light on the benefits of implementing positive psychology based interventions in schools to deal
effectively with issues pertaining to yet not limited to classrooms. These interventions are easy to implement, can be administered in groups or can be tailored as per the need of individual child. These interventions deal with building strengths and positive traits as well as with managing weaknesses and reducing negative traits.
