Bridging the gap between science and practice
During the last three decades, science has made many discoveries about how to promote thriving. Yet there is often a gap between what has been discovered in the lab and what is done in the field.
The gap is due, in part, to academics and practitioners living in different worlds. Academic researchers have lots of time to develop theories and test ideas, but often become disconnected from the demands of the practical world. Practitioners develop context-sensitive ways to promote thriving, but often lack the time to step back and explore new ways of doing things.
This Conference seeks to bridge the science/practice divide. It is unique in that it seeks to both make recent scientific breakthroughs accessible to the practitioner, and show people how to use those breakthroughs to change themselves and their world.
