Welcome to the World of Positive Psychotherapy

International Training Program


WAPP promotes the theory, method and practice of Positive Psychotherapy. It is engaged in the training of postgraduate professionals in psychotherapy, family therapy and counseling in different countries. In addition, WAPP organizes workshops, lectures, conferences and seminars pertaining to the different aspects of PPT as well as cross-cultural exchange of theories, techniques and research.


In January 2015 the WAPP Board of Directors released the revised Training Standards which are valid for all countries. There will be for sure some interim arrangements for people who already started their training under other conditions. Please contact the WAPP Head Office if you have any questions about your qualifications or if you plan to participate in a training seminar (wappatpositum.org).


If you wish to offer trainings in your country, WAPP will be happy to assist you in organizational terms in conducting courses or in establishing an official training center for Positive Psychotherapy in your town. Information for organizers has been compiled as an overview to give you a first impression on how to proceed. For further questions please contact the Headoffice (wappatpositum.org).


The trainings are conducted by approx. 80 Basic and Master Course trainers from many different countries. Please notice that WAPP only certifies trainings offered by official WAPP trainers. Please check our trainer list for officially accredited trainers.
