Welcome to the
Institute for Positive Psychology &
Education Conference
2016: Converting Science into Practice
What is Positive Psychology?
Getting the most out of life
Our Vision
The Institute for Positive Psychology and Education
seeks to lead scientific research that
empowers individuals and groups to thrive
Our Research
Our focus is on positive psychology research and scientific
research on self and well-being, and educational, psychological,
and social research that results in positive outcomes that enable
individuals, families, communities, and organisations to thrive.
IPPE is focused on research-identified innovations that can be
empirically demonstrated by rigorous quantitative and qualitative
research to result in tangible outcomes.
IPPE focuses on diverse educational, business, and social
settings from pre-school to retirement and family and community
life.

to enhance social responsibility, to improve all performance, from the
individual up, and, perhaps above all, to increase justice in society —
to make Australia truly the land of the fair go, where all Australians
— and our nation — can flourish and thrive.
 We look forward to working with you to make a difference for all
Australians. Together we can — and we will — make a difference.
