    Can anybody please explain the assumptions of this approach because the psychology notes that I've been given are veryyy rambly and I'm really uncertain as to how much detail is needed. You can score a maximum of 3 marks for explaining an assumption in the exam.
    Thanks!

    Assumption 1- acknowledgment of free will
    This approach believes that humans are in charge of their emotions and have the free will to change how they direct thier emotions

    Assumption 2- Authenticity of goodness and excellence
    This assumption states that feelings of happiness and goodness are as natural as feelings of anxiety and stress p, and therefore psychologists need to assign these positive states of mind equal attention

    Assumption 3- focus of the 'good life'
    Those factors that contribute most predominately to a well-lived life
    The pleasant life- happiness comes from pursuing positive emotions in relation to the past, present and future
    The good life- happiness comes from pursuing activities that positively absorb and engage us
    The meaningful life- happiness comes from a deep sense of fulfilment by living for a purpose much greater than oneself
