Since launching in 2007, IPPA has grown into the preeminent international body that connects scholars, practitioners, and students in efforts to advance the science of positive psychology and its research-based applications. In addition to hosting the biennial World Congress on Positive Psychology, IPPA offers numerous opportunities for members to learn and collaborate year-round.

Today, IPPA is home to five divisions wherein researchers, academics, practitioners, and students connect to learn about and advance the science and application of positive psychology in a specific domain: work and organizations, education, health, clinical psychology, and student experience. Members also participate in educational webinars through the Positive Psychology Leader Series and access an ever-growing Learning Library of more than 200+ presentations and educational tools.  

Last year, IPPA’s year-round programming grew substantially with the launch of multiple division-led initiatives and the new online member community, IPPA Engage, which allows our international membership the ability to connect, ask questions, find collaborators, promote work, share news, discuss topics of interest, and easily access all member benefits.

To support this growth and continue our strong trajectory, we are pleased to announce that IPPA is currently hiring two new part-time positions.
