Breaking news: For MAPP Graduates: We have added a page about your ability to use the Penn Library as a MAPP graduate.
For the Public: The MAPP Alumni association has at least 10 webinars per year by researchers in the positive psychology field. We now invite the public to join us
learning from these experts. To subscribe to an annual series plus access to
more than 30 recordings of past events, click here.
Here you can learn about the growing community of positive psychology practitioners who earned a master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania studying the science of human flourishing.
Perhaps someone in this community could help you increase well-being and engagement in your workplace, bring resilience practices to your schools, coach you through a major life transition, or help you build stronger relationships with family, friends, and colleagues. Our site will introduce you to MAPP alumni and their current work.
Members of this community have written outstanding books, blogs, and articles on many aspects of human flourishing.
Are you looking for coaches to work with executives or individuals to enhance performance? For help with writing projects to make a mark on the world? For someone with experience helping organizations work collaboratively toward important goals? For someone who has helped school districts build on the strengths of teachers, parents, and students? For someone who can help with major life challenges such as dealing with new babies or aging parents? All of these levels of expertise exist in our community.
We are friendly, kind, and encouraging towards anybody who shares our commitment to increase human flourishing around the world. Our collective goal is to see 51% of the world population flourishing by 2051.
We contribute to this goal by practicing positive psychology in schools, corporations, healthcare organizations, universities, and the media. We write books and articles about evidence-based approaches that work. We teach courses and give lectures on the science of positive psychology at all educational levels.
We do this all over the world. We have graduates in Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, Canada, Mexico, the US, Europe, and Africa. MAPP alumni are proud to be an international and diverse community.
There is something intangible that the MAPP alumni have. We call it “MAPP magic.” It is a deep sense of love, kindness, and shared purpose that we experience when we go through the MAPP program at UPENN. One of our goals is to keep the MAPP magic alive and share it with others throughout the world. We cannot wait to share our passion about positive psychology with you!
