FROM VULNERABILITY TO RESILIENCE & WELL-BEING: ADVANCES IN EXISTENTIAL POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY (PP2.0)

Our Meaning Conference once again rises to the challenge of the times with a world dangerously divided along ideological, economic and racial lines. The enormity and complexities of real-world problems, such as global warming, refugee crisis, growing income gap, and the alarming increases in depression, opioid-related deaths, and suicide, are beyond the scope of any school of psychology and demand a multidisciplinary solution. That’s why, now more than ever, the world needs INPM’s inclusive “Big Tent” approach.

We have chosen the conference theme, because at a time when our vulnerability is laid bare by the external threats and our collective existential crisis, we embrace it as an opportunity to explore and discover new pathways to resilience and well-being; this is the basic orientation of existential positive psychology or second wave positive psychology (PP2.0). PP2.0 may be defined as the scientific study of meaning, resilience, virtue, and well-being, as well as evidence-based applications to improve the life of individuals and society by embracing the dark side of human existence. We welcome researchers and practitioners from all disciplines and theoretical stripes to join us in tackling any of the following areas.

  1. The role of meaning in well-being.
  2. The contributions of cultural differences and indigenous psychology to global well-being.
  3. The need to confront human suffering as the foundation for well-being.
  4. The role of responsibility in personal, institutional, and global well-being.
  5. The transformation of shame, guilt, anxiety, and other negative emotions as a means of achieving sustainable happiness.
  6. The role of faith and spirituality in positive mental health.
  7. The positive psychology of sickness, death and dying.
  8. The effect of interactions between positive and negative emotions on well-being.
  9. A dialectical mindset in avoiding radicalism and achieving a balance.
  10. Humility and servant leadership in resolving conflicts.
  11. Moral courage in the face of dangers and risks.

The above is only a subset of the vast domain of PP2.0. All submissions are welcome in any areas related to the adaptive benefits of what is typically considered as undesirable or unprofitable for well-being.
