The 3rd Canadian Conference On Positive Psychology

The 3rd Canadian Conference on Positive Psychology was a huge success! Thank you to all of you for joining us! Here are some of the highlights!

We were thrilled to have Barbara Fredrickson as one of our keynote speakers. She spoke about 'Prioritizing Positivity'.

We were fortunate enough to have Kim Cameron, another keynote speaker, discuss "Developing Positive Leadership Practices".

Invited Speaker, Haesun Moon, spoke about 'Coaching A to Z: Extraordinary Use of Ordinary Words". Thank you to all of our invited speakers, and symposium and workshop presenters.

A big thank you you all of our poster presenters, including Rory Darkins, pictured above. You all did a fantastic job!

Of course, we could not have made this happen without our amazing volunteers! Thank you all for your enthusiasm and dedication.



Positive psychology is a topic area within the field of psychology that seeks to provide scientific answers to the question "What is the good life?" Positive psychology is not a modality for treating psychological disorders. The Canadian Positive Psychology Association (CPPA) offers learning opportunities about positive psychology through educational events such as workshops and conferences. CPPA does not offer psychological services of any kind. Anyone seeking counseling, therapy or other forms of (mental) health services is advised to consult a licensed (mental) health services professional. Membership in CPPA does not provide members with any credentials or certification to practice, does not qualify someone as a psychologist, or allow them to offer psychological services.

“Thank you so much for telling me about the positive psychology conference. I found it rich with information and I enjoyed the connections that I made. Please tell the ladies who worked so hard on this conference that they did a fabulous job. I can rarely say that I get this much out of a conference. Excellent speakers. The hotel was very attentive -and for the first time I saw Niagara Falls.” - Janet Schrager, PhD

Positive Psychology

"I suffered severe physical, emotional and mental injuries in a workplace accident about 1-2 years ago. It has been a long difficult journey to recovery, but now I am back at work and enjoying a few of the activities I used to enjoy. Mindfulness and Positive Psychology have been a big part of my recovery efforts and I am not done yet. Learning to live within my limitations, but still growing in experience and knowledge has helped me regain my psychological autonomy. I have also strengthened my resilience to be able to have the confidence to endure the challenges of everyday life, enjoy and appreciate my relationships with others and what is good about the world around us.  There is some truth to “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger." - CPPA Member
