A gap has been filled: finally, there is a glossary of Positive Psychotherapy.
About 150 terms of the world-renowned method of Positve Psychotherapy are explained by its founder – Nossrat Peseschkian – and by Anas Aziz, a long-standing colleague. In this glossary not only the strictly psychological and psychiatric terms are taken into account but also therapeutic, educational and ideological aspects and theories are included. (Lexikon der Positiven Psychotherapie. Fischer Verlag)
Thanks to the co-operation of a global network of centres of Positive Psychotherapy as well as many other supporters of this method, we can experience the development of Positive Psychotherapy in many countries. Collaborators of the centres and trainers are of great help for this development and have also cooperated in an international project of Peseschkian Foundation: On of the last books by Nossrat Peseschkian – in collaboration with Anas Aziz – the Lexikon der Positiven Psychotherapie („Encyclopedia of Positive Psychotherapy“) contains a valuable glossary of terms of Positve Psychotherapy in German and English. This glossary has meanwhile been translated by some trainers of Positive Psychotherapy into their mother tongues. The Foundation would like to offer the glossary in as many languages as possible. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the previous and future contributors for their wonderful work.
