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.”
