Positive Psychology News Daily

If you're interested in Positive Psychology, you might like to check out Positive Psychology News Daily, a new online publication founded by Senia Maymin (MAPP graduate, MBA and Executive Coach) at the beginning of 2007. PPND aims to provide the latest news and research into the science of happiness and Positive Psychology, covering a whole range of subjects from Learning Optimism to Using your Strengths in a Job Search.

Most of its authors are graduates of the Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) program at the University of Pennsylvania. Some are written by UK MAPP guest authors, of which I am one. You can read my first article, For Better or For Worse? The Marriage of Technology and Positive Psychology here.

Your article is very interesting. I think that as with anything, some people can abuse online tools and others will use them for good. But with online consultations there is the additional barrier that can impact on the effectiveness of the treatment - you lose out on body language signals, tone of voice as well as being dependent on how competent someone is in using written words to express themselves.
