About the conference

Our upcoming conference on "Positive Psychology in Practice" will focus on cutting-edge science and the practical application of Positive Psychology Interventions in organisations and clinical settings.

Leading experts, who share a passion for Positive Psychology, will provide you with an up-to-date overview of the science of wellbeing and critically examine the emergence and development of this new field. They will explore the keys to a happy and meaningful way of life by addressing gaps, biases and exciting new ways to bring this topic forward.

The goal of this event is to promote a better understanding of what Positive Psychology actually is, the study and science behind it and how we can move beyond the theoretical to incorporate positive psychology into practical and real-life settings.

Learn from leading authorities about evidence-based positive psychology techniques and recommendations that have been shown to increase clients’ wellbeing.

Format of event:

During the two days, the event will use a range of formats: speaker keynote presentations, oral poster presentations, poster exhibitions and an interactive lunch. In between, visitors can visit our trading exhibition and get inspired by relevant products and services.

Plenary sessions will be interspersed throughout the day with question and answer sessions and panel discussions. The meeting will provide a valuable opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, and consider collaborative projects.

Together we can create positive networking and growth opportunities for everyone involved.

Attractions of Utrecht

Utrecht's cosy centre is like an open-air museum where every brick has its own story to tell. The history of the city dates back to Roman times, with the Middle Ages also having undeniably left their mark. Utrecht is located on top of what was once the border of the Roman Empire. Countless houses, churches, monuments - and the characteristic wharves, of course - in the city commemorate that rich history. These days the city combines this its historic buildings with modern architecture, creating an interesting balance between the old and the new.

Utrecht's surroundings are of equal historical importance. The city is surrounded by impressive citadels, forts and castles, including Kasteel de Haar, the largest castle in the Netherlands. Take a tour to the forts and hear the exciting stories of the New Dutch Waterline, or climb to the top of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug: the Pyramid of Austerlitz.
