Saturday, January 24, 2009 from 8:45 AM to 6:15 PM (PST)
2009 Stauffer Symposium on Applied Psychology
January 24, 2009
9 am – 5 pm
Claremont Graduate University
Positive Psychology emerged at the beginning of the new millennium as a movement within psychology aimed at enhancing human strengths and optimal human functioning. This emerging area of scholarship, scientific research, and application has inspired leading scholars and practitioners from across the globe to rethink the fundamental nature of how we live, work, and educate; of our health and well-being; of how to design and lead positive institutions; and how to develop positive public policies. The ideas contained in the initial work in positive psychology have spread far and wide across the disciplines to form a broader movement, sometimes referred to as the positive social and human sciences.
Claremont Graduate University is proud to announce that it will host a day-long event to celebrate the emerging positive social and human sciences, and to push their boundaries. Leaders and leading scholars from across the positive science landscape will gather in Claremont on Saturday, January 24, 2009 to discuss Applying the Science of Positive Psychology to Improve Society.
This day of thoughtful reflection will include presentations and panel discussions. Opportunities will also be given for audience members to pose their own questions about how to use the science of positive psychology to benefit societies across the globe.
