News from the Frontier

In the last few days of June, I had the pleasure to attend the Fourth World Congress of the International Positive Psychology Association. Wow! I was amazed at the rush of people that moved ever so quickly as the doors opened to get seats at the front of the ballroom which held all 1500 of…
