Mission Statement

The mission of the Clinical Division of IPPA is to support and advance professional, ethical, effective, evidence-based and culturally responsive practice of positive psychology principles in clinical settings.

Purpose Statement:

The purpose of the IPPA Positive Clinical Psychology Division is to provide an organized, collegial, member-driven, collaborative platform for clinicians, academics, researchers and students to provide a shared context in advancing the conceptualization, research and practice of positive clinical psychology. The Division also aims to provide a shared context for clinicians to exchange knowledge, explore new possibilities and solve challenging clinical concerns.

If you have any questions about the Clinical Division, please contact us at info@ippanetwork.org.


The Positive Clinical Psychology Division offers an award, a publication, a Clinical Case Study Challenge program that critiques applications of positive clinical psychology in addressing a variety of clinical concerns, and a Virtual Peer Consultation Group that helps clinicians learn how to apply positive psychology to clinical practice.
