Members, groups, Centers and Associations

Positive Psychotherapy is represented by WAPP members, groups, Centers, and National Associations in more than 25 countries worldwide.

If you are interested in becoming a WAPP member, please see the chapter Membership.

Newly started training courses or single Positive Psychotherapists in one country can form groups and inform WAPP about their activities. So WAPP can recommend them as contact persons or comminicate their training dates.

To guarantee the quality of teaching and training according to WAPP criteria, WAPP offers training institutes or groups to make an agreement and become an officially recognized Center or Association for Positive Psychotherapy. Here is a sample agreement for your information.

To become a Center for Positive Psychotherapy a training organizer or training institute needs to have successfully organized and finished one Basic Course training.

National Associations for Positive Psychotherapy are established by all official Centers of one country. The Association serves a better networking between its member training institutes, organizes national events, and deals with all kinds of national issues, such as psychotherapy regulations and official accreditation.

Please contact the for more information.

In the list to the left you can find contacts – institutions and WAPP members – in your country.

If your country or your personal entry is not in the list, please ask the for more information.

Advisory Council of Associations and Centers – ACAC

In 2015 the Advisory Council of Associations and Centers (ACAC) was established. Representatives of all official Centers and Associations meet once a year for a better networking among each other, to discuss and exchange ideas and experience.

  • Associations appoint two representatives
  • Centers appoint one representative

The Council has an advisory function to the WAPP Board of Directors. This means, the Council’s members will meet and discuss current issues defined by themselves or by the WAPP Board and will report about these to the Board.

The annual meeting is planned to take place every year at the International Trainer Seminars (ITS). Another platform to meet and discuss is the facebook group ACAC-WAPP.

If your Center or Association is not yet present in the Council, please contact the .
