Dear Colleagues,
Let me invite you most cordially to participate in the Second International Conference on Positive Psychology in the Czech Republic, organized jointly by the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University and by the Czech Positive Psychology Centre, to be held from May 22 to May 24, 2013 in Brno.

The main objective and purpose of this international meeting with the presence of first-rate scholars from Positive Psychology science, research and practice is, above all, to give an opportunity for enriching and sharing our knowledge and experience. In addition, there is also a scope for inspiration and fruitful views exchange. The conference will also enhance further international and interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Those involved in the basic and applied research in the field of Positive Psychology as well as those who would like to share their experience with the application of Positive Psychology in practice are most welcome to present their oral or poster presentations. Students and those interested in passive participation are cordially welcome as well. 

At the international CPPC 2013 conference, you will have a unique opportunity to benefit from attending the invited lectures delivered by international scholars and experts from the field of Positive Psychology, as well as from attending lectures delivered in the conference’s various thematic sessions. A poster section, as well as pre-conference workshops, will be a part of the conference program, too. 
Varied international participation is given by representation of foreign participants coming from 32 countries of the world.

The subtitle of the CPPC 2013 conference is “Giving Hope – Giving Future”.

Positive Psychology is a promising approach, emphasising the importance of positive aspects of human existence, and it has come up with valuable scholarly theories on their causes and contexts, as well as their conditions and consequences. 
In practice, Positive Psychology offers specific implications for the future by encouraging hopeful thinking, cultivation of character strengths and virtues, suggesting interventions of positive psychotherapy aiming to greater life satisfaction and happiness, developing positive education and, last but not least, dealing with issues on meaningfulness and spirituality. 

It is hope, that in the time of distress, uncertainty, personal, social, and economic crisis, builds for us a meaningful bridge to a better future. 
Hope, that shows direction, suggests a way and strengthen our belief in attaining the meaningful goals, can therefore become a vital buffer protecting us against negativity, resignation and despair.
It is hope, that can become a key to optimal functioning of an individual and society.  

We are looking forward to seeing you in Brno, the hospitable heart of Central Europe, in May.   

Alena Slezackova,
Conference Chair
