Mission and Vision

To promote, facilitate, and share the science of positive psychology around the world…

For more than a decade, the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) has been promoting the benefits of positive psychology to the world. In fact, we have a three-part mission focused on helping the field thrive:

  • To promote the science of positive psychology and the breadth of research- and evidence-based applications.
  • To facilitate collaboration among researchers, teachers, students, and practitioners of positive psychology around the world and across the academic disciplines.
  • To share the findings and information, outcomes, and interventions of positive psychology with the broadest audiences around the world.

Our Vision for the Future

Our vision now and the future of IPPA is one that integrates positive psychology activities around the world.  We collaborate with and support other organizations and the thousands of researchers and practitioners who are working in the field of positive psychology around the world. 

We want our community – those with any level of interest in the field of positive psychology – to see us as a supporter, as a convener, and a coordinator, supporter, and disseminator of the programs, resources, and activities that foster further collaboration. 

IPPA hopes to support a global dialogue of researchers and practitioners working in the field and those with interest in learning or translating and putting evidence-based research into practice.

We hope you will join us as we continue to work to achieve our mission.
