Chapter 6 explores positive psychology and health in the context of situational dependence and personal striving. It includes a history of positive psychology, and relates Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to biopsychosocial health. The chapter discusses categories of coping strategies and strategies that reduce the impact of threats to health (such as unemployment, restructuring changes) as well as mediators (self-efficacy, goals, and optimism).
