The Canadian Positive Psychology Association is thrilled to offer the 4th Educating for Resilience Conference. This conference is for teachers, counselors, educators, and positive psychology practitioners who are interested in learning how to use Positive Psychology to increase resilience in schools. 


This year we are partnering with at Branksome Hall and have a complete new line-up of talented and highly inspirational speakers. We have taken into account all that we have learned from our previous conference in 2013 and are using that to ensure that this year's conference is bigger and even more successful than the last!


While traditional mental health programs focus on coping with mental illness, Educating for Resilience provides the strategies and techniques to increase positive mental health and fitness - a rapidly growing focus in the teaching community.

We are honoured to bring internationally renowned researchers, thought leaders and practitioners in resilience to our conference this year.  While our conference planning team is busy finalizing the details, we invite you to discover the preliminary information that tells why educators from across Canada find that this conference has such a powerful influence in their work.  Building upon the success of three highly successful conferences, this year’s conference features  a new format to allow for a deeper exchange of knowledge and proven applications. Watch the website as  more details become available over the next few weeks.
