The Master of Applied Positive Psychology program at the University of Pennsylvania educates people, in the theories, empirical evidence, and practical applications of Positive Psychology.
Many of the participants in the MAPP program are already established professionals in fields such as:
Positive Psychology is “not just the study of disease, weakness, and damage; it also is the study of strength and virtue…Psychology is not just about illness or health; it also is about work, education, insight , love, growth, and play. And in this quest for what is best, positive psychology does not rely on wishful thinking, self-deception, or hand waving; instead, it tries to adapt what is best in the scientific method to the unique problems that human behavior presents in all its complexity”
