The Second World Congress on Positive Psychology is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning how the “science of thriving” is changing the lives of individuals, communities, and institutions around the globe. Lectures, workshops, symposia and poster sessions will feature leading-edge research, as well as applications of positive psychology in a variety of fields – from business to education to medicine. The Second World Congress on Positive Psychology will be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown – the heart of America’s original capital.

The burgeoning field of positive psychology focuses on the study and practice of what is right in the world – the positive emotions, strengths, and virtues that make individuals, institutions, and communities thrive. Attendees of the Second World Congress on Positive Psychology will have the opportunity to discuss the latest research, insights, and ideas and interact with like-minded people who focus on studying what is best in life and how to create more of it.
