Description

Courage, Faith, and Meaning: Existential Positive Psychology’s Response to Adversity

Join researchers and practitioners from over 30 countries at the 2018 Meaning Conference, a “big tent” gathering known for its inclusivity, integration, and innovation in meaning research and its applications since 2000.

See why this biennial conference has been called a “homecoming” by such illuminaries as Dr. Carol Ryff, especially as we celebrate the INPM’s 20th year anniversary jointly with founder Dr. Paul Wong’s 80th birthday.

(Visit our conference website.)

Keynote speakers include Carol Ryff, Michael Steger, Ken Sheldon, Phil Watkins, Emmy van Deurzen, Robert Neimeyer, Michael Bond, Bruce Alexander, Itai Ivtzan, Tim Lomas, Chris Corrigan, and Paul Wong.

Invited speakers include Veronika Huta, Roger Tweed, Piers Worth, Joel Vos, Eileen Dowse, Yannick Jacob, Pninit Russo-Netzer, Kathy Story, with more to come.

Testimonials

from the 2016 Meaning Conference

"I attended only on Friday, but in that one day found it fascinating, and enjoyed the presentations a lot. Much more interesting and enticing than in regular psychology conventions."
— Ami Rokach, Ph.D., Course Director, York University

"Thank you for organizing and leading the last conference in Toronto; after a few weeks of coming back home in Mexico, I have been able to savor all of the great knowledge you and your team were able to add in order to produce a simple but highly effective event. No doubt all of the learnings will be very well used in our University."

"Thank you so much for the excellent conference. As Dr. Carol Ryff so beautifully expressed, the INPM felt like “home” to many of us. The conference content itself was a head-spinner and participants were marvelous. Thank you. I look forward to my future participation."
