IPPA World Congress on Positive Psychology
The Annual American Psychological Association Convention
We are on the move this summer!
We are excited to meet professors, practitioners, and students at two major conferences taking place over the next few weeks; the IPPA World Congress on Positive Psychology in Vancouver, Canada, and the Annual American Psychological Association Convention in Washington, DC.
These conferences provide participants with a perfect opportunity to cultivate a positive mindset and reflect on mental health and wellbeing, and the ways in which we can make a difference in our profession. Hogrefe resources on positive psychology and mental health, featured below and at these upcoming conferences, can help you in your practice and in your teaching or learning environment. They were developed to effectively promote wellbeing, resilience, and personal growth.

The questionnaire, adapted to ages ranging from 3-18, has three versions – Family, School, and Self-report – to evaluate different behavioral indicators of executive functions in the daily contexts in which the child operates, providing an ecological and comprehensive evaluation.
