Ferhat KARDAŞ [1] , İlhan YALÇIN [2]


There has been an increase in the emphasis on the positive feelings and strengths of individuals in the mental health by the emergence of positive psychology approach. Positive psychology approach points to the potential of positive emotions contributing to clients' well-being, and various studies in this framework show that gratitude as a positive feeling has become one of the tools used to improve clients’ mental health. In this review study, the concept of gratitude, which is quite old in various fields but is a current topic in the field of psychology, is handled in various dimensions and some suggestions are given for practitioners and researchers in this framework.

Pozitif psikoloji yaklaşımıyla birlikte ruh sağlığı alanında bireylerin pozitif duygularına ve güçlü yanlarına olan vurgu artmaya başlamıştır. Pozitif psikoloji yaklaşımıyla birlikte pozitif duyguların danışanların iyilik hallerine katkı sunma potansiyellerine dikkat çekilmekte ve bu çerçevede yapılan çeşitli çalışmalar, pozitif bir duygu olarak şükran duymanın danışanların ruh sağlığını iyileştirmede kullanılan araçlardan biri haline geldiğini göstermektedir. Bu gözden geçirme çalışmasında, çeşitli alanlarda oldukça eski ancak psikoloji alanında güncel bir konu olan şükran kavramı çeşitli boyutlarıyla ele alınmakta ve bu çerçevede uygulayıcı ve araştırmacılar için bazı öneriler sunulmaktadır.
