An important part of our Section involves contributing to the scholarly and popular body of knowledge about positive psychology. Many of our members are involved in ongoing research, practice, and training efforts, so we have developed this section with the intent to make it a resource for those interested in seeing what we’ve been up to. We’re very interested in continuing to add new material in all sorts of formats (links to websites, papers, podcasts, presentations, etc), so if you would like to contribute, please contact our Communications Officer, Dr. Sara Cho Kim (sarachokim[at]gmail.com).
