Positive Psychology, the “science of what goes right in life,” is an area of research in academic psychology. As the German-speaking Association of Positive Psychology, DACH-PP e.V. or GAPP, we strive to make Positive Psychology accessible to a wider audience in the German-speaking part of the world.
We are a non-profit association that was founded in 2013. Our aim is to promote the application of Positive Psychology in practice, e.g. in coaching, counselling and psychotherapy, leadership, teamwork and business, and in education. Every two years, we organize a congress to give German-speaking practitioners and researchers an opportunity to network. Our first Congress Positive Psychology was held in Berlin on September 2016, 17th-18th and received great interest.
