2017 Positive Organizational Intervention Challenge


What makes for an exceptional positive organizational intervention?

The Positive Organizational Intervention Challenge (POIC) gives students, practitioners and researchers an opportunity to innovate positive psychology interventions for the workplace. Over the next few months, challenge participants will develop a broadly applicable intervention based on established research findings. All division members will be invited to contribute to the process in the second and third rounds. Three finalists will present their interventions at the Fifth World Congress on Positive Psychology in Montréal on July 16, 2017.

News and Updates

Thank you to everyone who submitted an abstract in the first round! We received more than two dozen proposals for interventions. Ten semi-finalists will be announced soon at which point division members will have an opportunity to help review and build upon the proposed interventions.
