The PERMA model was designed by Martin Seligman with five core elements of psychological well-being and happiness. Seligman believes that these five elements can help people reach a life of fulfillment, happiness, and meaning. This model can also be applied to institutions to develop programs to help people develop new cognitive and emotional tools.

The five domains that encompass PERMA are:

  • Positive emotion (P)
  • Engagement (E)
  • Relationships (R)
  • Meaning (M)
  • Accomplishment (A)
