Second, IPPA wants to work for the effective and responsible application of positive psychology in diverse areas such as organizational psychology, counseling and clinical psychology, business, health, education, and coaching. The third mission of the organization is to foster education and training in the field. In all of these endeavors, we want to create rigorous standards for positive psychology, so that the field always represents the very best levels of current knowledge.
