Nadrzędnym celem psychologii pozytywnej jest dążenie do szczęścia człowieka. Osiągnięcie tego celu może nastąpić poprzez samorozwój i doskonalenie. Osiągnięciu szczęścia i lepszej jakości życia może sprzyjać rozwój cnót i sił charakteru. W celu treningu poszczególnych sił charakteru można wykorzystać specjalne ćwiczenia, które mają udokumentowany wpływ na wzrost dobrostanu. W artykule zostały omówione pozytywne interwencje dla dwóch przykładowych sił charakteru, powiązanych z dobrostanem: wdzięczności i humoru. (abstrakt oryginalny)
