Workshops & Events

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.

    Résumé

    On peut changer. On peut tous mener une vie plus épanouie. La clé se trouve dans le cerveau. Cela dit, comment instaurer des changements durables? Comment échapper aux automatismes qui mènent nos vies? C’est ce que nous explique Daniel Siegel avec sa fameuse métaphore du cerveau dans la main et ses concepts de claire conscience ou mindsight et de cerveau intégré. Les travaux de Siegel sont passionnants, éclairants, voire révolutionnaires.

    Vous en redemanderez.



    Biographie

    Psychologue, à la retraite de l'enseignement collégial , conférencière et formatrice en psychologie positive depuis 5 ans. Mon objectif: diffuser auprès de la population en général les résultats fascinants de la recherche en PP afin de contribuer, cela dit bien humblement, à l'amélioration du bien-être des individus. J'ai donné plusieurs centaines de conférences auprès des participants de l'université du 3ème âge, et auprès de diverses associations (futurs retraités des policiers de la ville de Montréal, regroupement de profs, etc.) J'ai créé une série de formations dans le cadre du projet Vivre heureux, ça s'apprend.  J'ai commencé à offrir cet automne mon premier atelier sur Zoom: Les 6 clés du bien-être, un aperçu du modèle PERMA-V.

    Event: 

    Webinar 
    Date: Thursday March 18th, 2021 
    Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm (EST)
    Host: Catherine Cimon-Paquet 
    Presenter: Jérémie Verner-Filion
    Topic: Goal pursuit, performance, and well-being in educational contexts: A motivational analysis of optimal functioning.
    Description: 

    Why do some students succeed, while others fail, in their attempt to reach their personal goals? What are the factors that allow them to balance their simultaneous quest for success and happiness? In this webinar, I will discuss some of my recent studies showing how student’s motivation for activities in which they engage outside the purview of their academic endeavors (i.e., passionate activities in university students and extracurricular activities in high-school students) can help or hinder the attainment of their personal goals, their functioning at school and their psychological well-being. 



    Biography: 

    Jérémie Verner-Filion is a professor at the Educational Sciences Department of the Université du Québec en Outaouais. His research focuses on the psychological and environmental factors that facilitate or hinder the development of children, adolescents, and young adults in school and in other significant spheres, such as extracurricular activities. Specifically, his research focuses on the motivational and self-regulatory processes that allow for the simultaneous attainment of high levels of performance and psychological well-being in educational contexts.
