The International Police Resilience Symposium – The Awe Project will take place from May 10-11, 2021. It is being co-hosted by the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and Columbia University Department of Psychiatry. 

This virtual event will bring together leading researchers in awe and how it relates to wellbeing, mental health, and resilience.

There will be no registration fee for attendees.   

Experiencing awe can certainly provide a “wow moment” but it is also much more than that. The extensive research has shown that by experiencing awe, it can increase prosocial behavior, patience, social connectedness, critical thinking, positive mood and much more.

Experiencing awe is associated with enhancing personal resilience and overall positive mental health. All of this is critical for first responders, front-line workers, teachers and many other professionals at being effective in their professional work while also with thriving in their personal lives.

The two day event will see researchers, innovators, and professionals sharing awe practices, programs, and research. 

With more than 20 presenters from 11 countries expected, you will leave with knowledge that you can start applying now for yourself and your organisation.
