The International Positive Psychology Association collaborates with a global network of regional and national organizations to advance the science and application of positive psychology year-round. Occasionally, speakers from regional conferences will donate their presentations and resources to the Learning Library to facilitate further discussion and collective learning. As new content is contributed to the collection, we will alert IPPA members through the Monthly News Round-up emails.
