  1. Amanda Flynn

    Dear Colleagues,
    Kindly update the Positive Psychology and Well-being 2020 event International Conference on Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Happiness, Well-being and Mental Health on October 19-21, 2020 in Vancouver, Canada.

  2. Marti

    Thanks for this amazing information! Will you be updating the list anytime soon?

    • Kerry

      I’m also interested in what’s coming for 2020. We are budgeting now so early notice helps us plan. Thanks for the comprehensive list so far!

  3. Kelsey J. O'Connor

    Hello! I just learned about this list. It’s exciting to see so much work on happiness!
    I have another conference to list: Well-Being 2020: Knowledge for informed decisions. The conference will take place March 2020 in Luxembourg. It will host presenters from all social sciences. The abstract submission deadline is October 15.
    For more information see: https://www.wellbeing2020.lu/

  4. Johnny Goldin

    Catherine very comprehensive approach which is purposely multi-disciplinary to the max! And that’s good and I was an early adopter in the field but not being an academic I was not embraced or even treated fairly by some of the founders. However I use the principles and especially the Character Strengths and Virtues test with my clients. I’m LICSW in Lexington MA in private practice and I’d call myself an eclectic intellectual— hard to be in the USA!

  5. Kebuya Nathaniel Nganchi

    Happy for a site like this. I’m kebuya Nathaniel. Will love to be getting more updates from here about seminars and workshops.

  6. Anju

    Hi, I am a senior psychologist and a business leader. My book on Burnout: How to beat fatigue and thrive in an overworked world, is being published by Penguin Random House. Will be out end of July 2019. I would love to speak to someone from Positive Psychology about it. thanks.

    thank you

  9. zhu lan

    30th World Summit on Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Psychotherapy and Philosophy is fake, cuz I registered on the website and pay for the online webinar, but didn’t get any email. I emailed them but also didn’t get any reply.

  10. Ava Oleson

    Do you plan to offer any conferences for the large mental health community in Southern California/Orange County region? Did you know there are approximately as many people in SoCal as there are in the entire country of Canada? Provided the conference is marketed effectively, you’d have a large audience here and I for one would be the first to sign up! We’d love to have you here.

    • Sydney Webb

      You may want to look into Claremont Graduate University and their research opportunities in Positive Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior. I currently attend this university and it’s unique in it’s combination of organizational psychology and positive psychology. One negative part is that tuition is expensive. Pay for research as a PhD student is available, but it’s not much.
      Email me at sydney.webb@cgu.edu if you want to chat more and I can connect you with the people you need.

    Hi Seph,
    Am a PhD student writing on integrating the Islamic concept of hope and sense of gratitude into CBT. I observed almost all the conferences are taking place in Western countries. How about organising one in South-East Asia, Midde-East or Africa

    • Uzma Mubashir

      Aoa. I loved ur topic. Such a conference in south east, middle east or Africa would be a great effort. Ur research topic is beautiful I must say

  62. Uzma Mubashir

    Plz keep me posted. I am interested in positive psychology conferences in December 2016 if any. Also, if you have any information about positive psychology conferences in 2017 plz share it here. Thanks

  63. Yu Perrin

    Please keep me posted. It’s brilliant to see there are so many opportunities in joining one in Europe.
    Unfortunately the dates of Angers conference have a conflict with the F1 sessions I bought my hubby as a birthday gift and the Berlin one is only for German speakers.
    I look forward to joining one soon.
    Thank you

  64. Janet Clarke

    Thanks for these weekly updates.
    Do you have 2017 information for any courses in Vancouver, Canada?
    Jan C

    • Seph Fontane Pennock

      Hi there Janet,
      It is our pleasure to keep you posted. We currently do not have any specific information about courses in that area, but I can highly recommend you to keep an eye on our courses page. We post all new PP courses that we discover there.
      All the best,

  65. Bada Bukola

    Please keep me posted.

    • Seph Fontane Pennock

      Sure thing Bada!

  66. Helen Tabe

    I am glad to meet this site and I intend to have updates of all conferences because I run an ngo on helping orphans with objectives to counsel orphans and integrate them into the society. positive psychology is very essential in their lives

    • Seph Fontane Pennock

      That sounds like a very noble cause Helen – keep up the amazing work. Hope our site will remain of use to you and the people you help.

  67. James G. Schiller, PhD

    Why are the Positive Psychology conferences in Germany (mid-July in Cologne and Sept. in Berlin) only two (2) days while that in Angers (France) are 4 days? It is difficult to justify organizational sponsorship or payment for such a short time, especially with regard to non-profits, etc. I suggest pre- and post- meetings, seminars or related presentations (even if informal or non-academic) to extend the conference offerings and lend more justification for employer support and payment.

    • Seph Fontane Pennock

      Unfortunately we have no say in that James. What I can tell you is that the ECPP in Angers is definitely going to be worth the travelling. Hope you get to make it to one of them!

  68. Jackie cleary

    Please keep me posted I’m doing a Positive Psychology conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2016

    • Seph Fontane Pennock

      Will do Jackie!
