Martin Seligman, the Director of the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania, discusses the current state of psychology and how he believes there is room for improvement, while giving an overview of what was good about it in the past.

After giving a brief history of what did and didn't work in the past in the fields of psychology and psychiatry, Seligman is able to show his audience how the areas of study have made lives less miserable for those suffering with mental conditions.

He delves into the issue further and explains how he believes that the future focus of psychology needs to be less concerned with just disorders and concentrate on ways that it can help improve and change lives for the better. Using examples and experiments from the field, Martin Seligman shows how psychology can help people achieve life satisfaction.
