Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology
This seems to be a popular approach in a lot of the books I'm reading. When I used to go to counselors in the 90s they didn't seem to use this as much. They did the old "I'm here to let you listen to yourself" stuff. I think it may have been better if they would have offered more suggestions. Anyone here have a background in Psychology who has studied this more in depth? What is your view on it? The books promoting it say that it is backed by multiple studies but I haven't heard much from the other side.
