Review of The Structure of Psychological Well-Being. By Norman M. Bradburn. Chicago, Ill.: Aldine Publishing Co., 1970

Mullen, Edward Joseph

The study reported in this monograph had as its general objective development of a model psychological well-being (happiness). The specific objective was to elaborate the conceptual framework developed in a pilot study and to refine operational measures of the variables that emerged as important. The ultimate goal of this ongoing program of research is to determine the nature of interaction between dimensions of psychological well-being and social processes. Bradburn presents the finding of the study systematically and thoroughly. A reviewer cannot begin to do justice to the richness and complexity of the findings as presented. However, a number of general conclusions arrived at by the investigators can be noted.
