dc.description.abstractThis study examined the link between positive psychology and peace psychology. The aim was to establish if a relationship existed the Positive Psychological variables of Happiness, Openness and Empathy and Beliefs about the Peace Process in Northern Ireland. 82 participants, sourced from a convenience sample of undergraduate students, completed a 34-item questionnaire that included four psychological measures; the generalized belief Measure, the subjective happiness scale, the Toronto empathy questionnaire and the Big Five inventory (openness questions only). Non-parametric correlational tests were conducted, including a Kendall’s Tau and Spearman’s rho. Results indicated a significant relationship did not exist between Happiness, Openness and Empathy and Beliefs about the Peace Process. However, a small, statistically significant correlation was found between Geographical Proximity to Northern Ireland and Beliefs about the Peace Process (rs (82) = 0.23, p = .038).
