"Psychology of Well-Being: Theory, Research and Practice promotes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of well-being with the view to providing rigorous, in-depth and cutting edge development from leading scholars and practitioners. An exciting feature will be the exploration of mechanisms which offer insight into the processes underlying well-being. The journal also serves to stimulate discussion and debate which will progress theory, research and practice. The ultimate aim of the journal is to translate this knowledge into practical and effective methods of enhancing well-being for individuals, groups and communities."
