The Science of Thriving: Online Conference in September

By on August 14, 2013 – 2:14 pm  One Comment

Kathryn Britton, MAPP '06, is the associate editor for PPND and recently the book author for the first two books in the PPND series, Resilience: How to Navigate Life's Curves and Gratitude: How to Appreciate Life's Gifts. She also writes regularly for PPND and in her own blog, Positive Psychology Reflections. Full bio. Articles.

Lately we have been posting articles about what happened at the IPPA Third World Congress. This was a great event, but only 1200 people were able to be there.

From September 16th to 20th, Dr. Heidi Halvorson is hosting a virtual online conference that is free to anyone in the world that wants to attend. The talks will be available online for 24 hours after they occur, so you don’t have to get up in the middle of the night if you live in China. For those that want to keep them and listen to them later, the recordings and transcripts will be available for $99.

“There’s a lot of advice out there – but where’s the evidence that it actually works? Join an extraordinary group of world-renown scientists, psychologists, and experts as they explain how each of us can be happier and more effective in every area of our lives, by understanding the science of thriving.” ~ Dr. Halvorson

There are at least 20 speakers listed on the conference registration page, including:

I mostly included only the professors. There are also journalists, coaches, and authors like Daniel Pink. Visit The Science of Thriving to see the full list and to register.

We would welcome short articles from people about what they learned during the conference and how they intend to put the ideas to work in their lives.

The book covers below convey some of the collected wisdom that will be featured during the online conference.
