NETO, Luís Miguel  e  MARUJO, Helena Águeda. Propostas estratégicas da Psicologia Positiva para a prevenção e regulação do stress. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.4, pp.585-593. ISSN 0870-8231.

This article presents an analysis of the relation between some concepts found in the literatures on stress management and of Positive Psychology, namely well-being, flow and hope. In this literature we analyse and put in perspective some concepts related to a second generation of researchers, elements of the some area of scientific research in Psychology, in particular the concepts of defensive pessimism and false hope. The authors end up presenting three case studies that are emblematic of the challenges underlying the articulation of the two mentioned literatures: a) The first one, under an historic frame, referred to the practices of intrinsic motivation in the Jesuit life style is articulated with the concept of flow, according to the proposal of Isabella Cskizentmihalyi (1988); b) The second one, of a more socio cultural nature, is related to the Japanese motorcycle gangs (Bosozoku), following the work of Sato (1998), the description of the optimal experience related to their cult; c) The third one, referred to the Portuguese national context, about the use of appreciative and self-awareness practices in the training of teachers, put forward by Neto, Marujo and Perloiro (1999). The aim of the options presented in this reflexion is to leave open new fields for research and future interventions in stress management and stress prevention, as well as presenting practical examples, already tried, of its applicability and social relevance.
