  • Matthew White (Australia) -- Positive Education

  • The international diverse audience will have the opportunity to discuss latest research, insights, and best practices and interact with like-minded people who focus on studying what is best in life and how to create more of it.

    "The World Congress objectives are threefold," remarked Dr. Christopher Peterson, IPPA Program Chair and Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan. "After attending the First World Congress on Positive Psychology, participants should be better able to understand, discuss, and critique theoretical perspectives in positive psychology; integrate findings from the latest basic research in positive psychology into their own ongoing or anticipated program of research or practice; and use positive interventions effectively in personal and professional settings," he remarked.

    An estimated 1,500 attendees - including researchers, clinicians, educators, students, business owners, coaches, and consultants - are expected at IPPA's inaugural World Congress.

    "In just its first year of existence, IPPA has grown to thousands of members from 80 countries, attesting to the increasing global interest in the burgeoning field of positive psychology," observed James Pawelski, Executive Director of IPPA, and the Director of Education in the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania, where he directs the Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Program (the world's first degree program in positive psychology).

    Since its inception in 1998, the field of positive psychology has seen an investment of tens of millions of dollars in research, the founding of several scientific journals, and the development of masters and Ph.D. programs in leading universities.
