From Martin E. P. Seligman, PhD

“You assuredly do not need to be a licensed psychologist to practice positive psychology or to be a coach. Freud’s

followers made the momentous error of restricting psychoanalysis to physicians, and positive psychology is not intended

as an umbrella for yet another self-protective guild.


If you are adequately trained in the techniques of coaching, in the theories of positive psychology, in valid measurement of

the positive states and traits, in the interventions that work, and you know when to refer a client to someone who is more

appropriately trained, you will be, by my lights, bona fide disseminators of positive psychology.”
