  • TITLE: Identity as Study Object of Positive Psychology

    AUTHORS: Ana Beatriz Garcia Costa Rodrigues, Claus Dieter Stobäus, Juan José Mouriño Mosquera

    KEYWORDS: Identity, Positive Psychology, Wellness, Healthy Identity

    JOURNAL NAME: Creative Education, Vol.7 No.8, June 3, 2016

    ABSTRACT: This study aims to list elements for a better understanding and study of identity in the theoretical bias of Positive Psychology. We start from a conception of identity as constitution of the subject, fluid, process, unfinished, constantly building throughout life. It occurs from experiences in certain contexts, the person considering its ontological, social and cultural aspects. Based on Positive Psychology literature review on the subject identity, we find very little published material on this topic in our reality, which leads us to make some links between the constituent elements of the construction of the identity concept in psychology, with the Positive Psychology, among them well-being, self-esteem, self-image and resilience, trying to delineate the possibility of having the identity (more) healthy, a possible object of study in the field of study. The fact that these concepts also are not static and are due to the subject’s interactions with the environment in which it develops leads us to consider that this is a plausible way to add healthy identity of the Positive Psychology study objects.
