Join us for our next lunchtime learning session

NZAPP President, Paul Tupou-Vea, will be presenting his University of Melbourne Masters in Positive Psychology Capstone Project, where he developed a comprehensive meta-model for working with wellbeing.

Positive psychology's third wave is gathering momentum. In this discussion, we traverse some of the opportunities that this direction presents and some potential pathways to explore. We explore three key questions: 1) How might we view wellbeing from a systems-informed perspective? 2) How can people self-sustain thriving in complexity? and 3) How might we view systems-informed positive psychology through an intercultural lens, especially for Māori?

Following Paul’s presentation, there will be a live Q & A session.
