MSc Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) programmes can currently be found in the UK at Anglia Ruskin University, Buckinghamshire New University, and the University of East London. Other universities, such as the University of Northampton, also offer some undergraduate positive psychology courses. This Proceedings represents the contributions of students and graduates (and staff) of these programmes to the 4th Applied Positive Psychology Symposium held on Saturday 2nd June 2018 at the Buckinghamshire New University High Wycombe campus. The annual Applied Positive Psychology Symposium dates back to the inaugural symposium held in May 2015, designed as an opportunity for the first cohort of graduates of the MSc Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) at Bucks to present their completed dissertation work to a wider audience, and prepare papers for the symposium’s Proceedings that were based on their dissertation projects. This symposium has proved a success and we were delighted to be able to return for a fourth year which, again, provided this opportunity for our students and students from other programmes to share their work with a wider audience. The symposia have only grown in popularity, scope, and engagement each year, with ever more contributions from other UK-wide MAPP and university positive psychology programmes. This year saw involvement from students at Anglia Ruskin University in the form of talks and the offering of a parallel workshop session on character strength development in schools, as well as a paper and poster from staff and students at the University of Northampton, alongside many Bucks MAPP graduates. Positive psychology is a growing field across the globe, offering exciting new opportunities for research and positive change across our society. The applied nature of the MAPP courses emphasises using evidence-based practices to actively improve lives and institutions, and MAPP students are at the forefront of this relatively new discipline, contributing innovative and important research, solutions, and products.
