Abstract

Introduction This Proceedings represents the contributions to our 3rd Applied Positive Psychology Symposium held on Saturday 20th May 2017. The symposium was first held in May 2015 as an opportunity for the first cohort of graduates of the MSc Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) at Buckinghamshire New University to present their completed dissertation work to a wider audience, and prepare papers for the symposium’s Proceedings that were based on their dissertations. The intention was, and still is, that students might use this opportunity to prepare a paper for subsequent publication in an academic journal. We are pleased that we were able to welcome back graduates from the first Bucks MAPP cohort to present at the symposium. For example, Dan Collinson and Lesley Lyle, who met on the course, were able to update us on their international work together as part of their company, Positive Psychology Learning (PPL). In addition, we have a contribution from Ruth Howard, a doctoral student at Bucks, on her work linking positive psychology approaches with support for families of people with autism. We are excited that, for the first time, we had presentations from students and alumni from the University of East London (UEL) MAPP-CP course (MSc Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology). We also expanded the format of presentations by including a film screening of a short film on positive psychology and space, presented by Dorota Filipowicz of UEL. We hope that future symposia will also attract submissions from students and alumni from other similar courses, such as the MAPP course at Anglia Ruskin University, and hope to expand to include even more presentation styles and learning opportunities, including potentially workshops.
