About the conference
The international Positive Psychology movement, initiated by Seligman nearly two decades ago, continues to capture the attention of people around the world as a ground-breaking approach to the understanding of the human psyche. Despite being a relatively new field, the positive psychology movement continues to grow as an internationally respected field and has witnessed significant developments worldwide.
Positive Psychology is the field of research and practice that focuses on positive emotions by fostering human strengths and virtues, and enabling people to flourish by increased engagement, meaning making, personal satisfaction and well-being.
Featuring international keynote presentations on the latest research, case studies, practical applications for organisations, clinical settings and educational institutions; as well as personal wellbeing, this conference will help you apply scientifically-grounded positive psychology research into practical and real-life settings, making it accessible to practitioners.
Delegates will update their knowledge on recent developments and learn about future perspectives in the field of Positive Psychology.
