On October 11, 2017, the Positive Psychology Leader Series will welcome Dr. Ilona Boniwell for a presentation on “Playing positive psychology: Using tangible tools and facilitation methods in positive psychology coaching and training.”

Despite evidence for the effectiveness of positive interventions for promoting positive states and reducing depression and anxiety, these interventions are not widely accepted in the organisational and coaching domains. They are often seen as too “fluffy” and removed from the realities of day-to-day business. This talk will help coaches and business consultants to communicate positive psychology concepts and solutions to professional audiences.

Dr. Boniwell heads the International MSc in Applied Positive Psychology (I-MAPP) at Anglia Ruskin University (that includes a dedicated positive psychology coaching pathway), teaches Positive Management at l’Ecole Centrale Paris and HEC, and consults around the world as a director of Positran and ScholaVie. Ilona founded and was the first Chair of the European Network of Positive Psychology (ENPP), and was also the first Vice-Chair of IPPA and has been a member of its Board of Directors since 2007. She is now the Vice-President for the Francophone Association of Positive Psychology, serves on the Board of Directors of the International Positive Education Network (IPEN) and is a co-editor of the Applied Positive Psychology Journal. She is author of or contributor on many texts related to positive psychology, and she is currently working on a new book, Positive Psychology at Work in a Nutshell (forthcoming in 2017).
