IPPA Divisions Toolkit

IPPA Divisions are interest groups organized by members in order to facilitate connection and collaboration around a shared topic of interest. Divisions work to advance the science and evidence-based application of positive psychology in a specific realm. Divisions help to bridge research and practice, convene diverse cultural and multidisciplinary perspectives, and provide a platform for all IPPA members to connect and collaborate on efforts that advance our mission.

Divisions are an important part of the organization and are established in Article 10, of IPPA’s Constitution

Below are some resources to help division leaders launch, grow and manage a division.
