This textbook, Towards Flourishing: Embracing well-being in diverse contexts, is an update and extension of the first edition Towards Flourishing: Contextualising positive psychology. This revision highlights the developments and changes in the vibrantly developing scientific field of Positive Psychology during the past decade, with particular reference to the newly emerging Third Wave (P3.0). It also includes findings from the newly developing field of multidisciplinary well-being studies, as well as other quality of life studies enhancing well-being in diverse contexts.

A golden thread that runs through the book is a reflection on what harmony, peace and balance on an individual, group and societal level may mean and how these can be cultivated in the process of well-being promotion.
