FERNANDES, Sheyla Christine Santos et al. Positive psychology in Brazil: current scenario and future indications. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.2, pp. 125-134. ISSN 1808-5687.

In order to analyze the Brazilian scientific production about Positive Psychology and understand how this approach has been used in this context, a systematic review was carried out. The terms "positive psychology" AND "Brazil" OR "Brazilian" OR "Portuguese" and "positive psychology" AND "Brazil" OR "Brazilian" OR "Portuguese" were applied in the SciELO, Index Psi, LILACS, PePSIC and PsycINFO databases. Works in Portuguese were selected with Positive Psychology as the central theme. A textual database was generated, analyzed using the Iramuteq software. It was evident that Positive Psychology has grown significantly in the Brazilian scenario, however in a non-systematic way, being used predominantly in the area of Psychology, in the interpretation and elaboration of assessment instruments, and in works about resilience, well-being, subjective well-being, marital and family satisfaction and affections in relationships.

Keywords : Psychology, Positive; Brazil; review.
