The Science of the Positive is the study of how positive factors impact culture and experience. Those of us who work as health and safety professionals can sometimes become so focused on the problems we are trying to reduce that we forget to identify and cultivate the strengths and protective factors that keep our communities strong. The Science of the Positive reverses this problem-centered frame, and focuses on growing the healthy, positive, protective factors that already exist in our communities.
