Buddhist psychology uses a humanistic approach that emphasises the worth of all human beings. The Buddha understood the mind and how it's integral to wellbeing and happiness. He promoted ethics and morality as a way to discipline the mind and create the right conditions for mental, emotional and spiritual health.
By focusing on human problems and discovering how to bring them to an end we become optimistic. We all have a natural ability to overcome hardship, pain, despair and suffering. By understanding the mind and its potential we have the capacity to grow our basic goodness. In Buddhism, all beings have inherent goodness that's completely natural and vital to liberation and freedom from our problems.
In Buddhist psychology instead of concentrating on dysfunction, we look at the whole person and access our potential for health and happiness by integrating every part of ourselves including mind and body. It's a complete approach that's holistic and people have been using it for well over 2500 years.
