PESA Annual Conference

PESA National Conference 2017

Preparations are well underway for PESA’s third national conference, to be held on 17 and 18 March, 2017, at Ravenswood School for Girls in Sydney.

The conference, entitled Building Positive Communities: Design, Implement, Embed, will provide marvellous resources and opportunities for collaboration, regardless of whether you are well advanced on your Positive Education journey, or taking your first steps.

We will again be offering our popular preconference seminar, Positive Psychology 101, to be presented by Dr Suzy Green D.Psyc.(Clin.) MAPS, Positive Psychology practitioner and founder of The Positivity Institute. Intended for teachers and parents with limited knowledge of Positive Psychology, this session will focus on the evidence for, and benefits of, implementing a Positive Psychology model at school and at home.

Our main conference is shaping up as our biggest ever, with 60 workshops, in addition to keynote presentations by international and local experts –
