The 2nd Educating for Resilience Conference is for teachers, counsellors, educators, and positive psychology practitioners who are interested in learning how to use Positive Psychology to increase resilience in schools. This year we are partnering with Upper Canada College (UCC) and have a complete new line-up of talented and highly inspirational speakers!

While traditional mental health programs focus on coping with mental illness, Educating for Resilience provides the strategies and techniques to increase positive mental health and fitness - a rapidly growing focus in the teaching community.

Positive psychology is a topic area within the field of psychology that seeks to provide scientific answers to the question "What is the good life?" Positive psychology is not a modality for treating psychological disorders. The Canadian Positive Psychology Association (CPPA) offers learning opportunities about positive psychology through educational events such as workshops and conferences. CPPA does not offer psychological services of any kind. Anyone seeking counseling, therapy or other forms of (mental) health services is advised to consult a licensed (mental) health services professional. Membership in CPPA does not provide members with any credentials or certification to practice, does not qualify someone as a psychologist, or allow them to offer psychological services.



"I suffered severe physical, emotional and mental injuries in a workplace accident about 1-2 years ago. It has been a long difficult journey to recovery, but now I am back at work and enjoying a few of the activities I used to enjoy. Mindfulness and Positive Psychology have been a big part of my recovery efforts and I am not done yet. Learning to live within my limitations, but still growing in experience and knowledge has helped me regain my psychological autonomy. I have also strengthened my resilience to be able to have the confidence to endure the challenges of everyday life, enjoy and appreciate my relationships with others and what is good about the world around us.  There is some truth to “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger." - CPPA Member
