“Traditionally when people thought about addiction, they thought about some form of drug or alcohol dependence. Over the past few decades a new class of addictions has emerged as a result of technology, making addiction a much more pervasive phenomenon, causing much misery to millions the world over. Though traditionally the realm of addiction was the of clinical psychology or psychopathology, today we’re going to look at how positive psychology can help! Our special guest today has written six books focusing on a wide variety of topics, from addiction to creating your best life.
