In November 2015, the Canadian Positive Psychology Association held the 2nd Educating for Resilience Conference. This conference was developed for teachers, counsellors, educators, and positive psychology practitioners who are interested in learning about how to use Positive Psychology to increase resilience in schools. We partnered with Upper Canada College (UCC) and had a complete new line-up of talented and highly inspirational speakers. It was an outstanding day of learning about how to increase resilience in schools for student, faculty, and staff.

While traditional mental health programs focus on coping with mental illness, Educating for Resilience provides the strategies and techniques to increase positive mental health and fitness - a rapidly growing focus in the teaching community. Register now and start building resilient classrooms!
