 Positive Psychology – new ideas for happier living

Leading experts Dr Itai Ivtzan and Dr Tim Lomas will share the latest findings from the new “second wave” of Positive Psychology research.

They will explain the unexpected benefits of embracing the darker side of life – and how we can learn to harness our difficult experiences and feelings to cope better and get more out of life.

Covering themes such as meaning, resilience, mortality, change, suffering and spirituality, Itai and Tim will show us how the challenging times in life can ultimately lead to us to greater growth, insight, healing and transformation.

Dr Itai Ivtzan and Dr Tim Lomas are both psychologists and lecturers on the Masters in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) at University of East London (UEL). They have published a wide range of books and journal papers.

Dr Ivtzan’s main areas of research are spirituality, mindfulness, meaning, and self-actualisation. Dr Lomas’ areas of research interest include ‘second wave’ positive psychology, cross-cultural lexicography and mindfulness/Buddhism.

Their recent books include Second Wave Positive Psychology, The Positive Power of Negative Emotions and Awareness Is Freedom.


Doors will open at 18:30 and the event will start at 19:00
