Body Full of Joy

Need some positive psychology expertise in your school, business, or organization? There are now more than 500 MAPP graduates from the University of Pennsylvania program.  They live around the world, and they pursue a wide range of applications of positive psychology.  We invite you to browse our Directory to find people whose expertise may serve your application needs and/or who may be in your geographical location.

For MAPPsters

If you are a MAPP alum, you can log in to see the fete/summit history page with pointers to artifacts from previous year's fetes and summits, including pre-reads and presentation slides.   If we receive slides from this year's speakers, we will share them via that page.

Watch your Newsbriefs for information about massive MAPP meetups about issues related to Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter.  We gather to find ways that we can use our combined expertise to contribute to greater world-wide well-being in these times of stress and change.

Here you can learn about a 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! 

With love, The MAPP alumni
