The CAPP program is one of the best gifts I’ve gifted myself with…
- The curriculum is coherent, modern (up-to-date), connected, seamless, inspiring, science-based, and thought provoking.
- The structure works beautifully –> Video-classes (distance learning), On-Site classes, Interviews with subject matter experts, group discussions & activities, interactive & fun activities, and physical exercises –> an amazing & complete piece of work that is meant to teach in a fun and stimulating way.
- The instructors –> I have had the privilege to learn with Emiliya Zhivotovskaya. She is a terrific instructor. Her passion for her mission flows & shines from behind all the effort that she sincerely invests in teaching the material.
An amazing experience. If time goes back, I’ll do it again a thousand times. Money, time, and effort well-spent.
Have a wonderful day,

“The CAPP program has changed my life in ways that I could never imagine. When I joined her course I was practicing as a Holistic Nutrition Coach. It was evident to me that my clients were experiencing mind chatter and issues with self- esteem. My certification as a Positive Psychology Practitioner has helped me to help my clients live happier and healthier lives. Not only is Emiliya multi-talented she is also a phenomenal woman. I am so grateful to Emiliya for offering the positivity courses. The courses have improved the quality of my life and the lives of my clients. One person can truly make a difference in the world. Thank you Emiliya!”

“No scientific experiment could ever measure the amount of positivity that you have generated in our CAPP class!
Our CAPP journey has been one of self-discovery, joy, learning, and love. You managed to create a safe haven for all of us to share openly and in a spirit of true appreciation. You educated us through rigorous research, you offered us the healthiest organic foods, and you engaged us with stories, video clips, and your greatest sense of humor. More importantly, you made us feel part of a community of extraordinary life-changers.
On a personal level, I especially appreciated your intellectual curiosity, your conscientiousness, your encyclopedic knowledge, your passion for the topic, and your interest in our learning. You treated everyone with respect and compassion, and openly shared emotional tidbits of your own story. I was impressed, inspired, and moved.
Your enthusiasm, passion and zest for the good life are a gift I will always treasure.”

“I have waited several years for the Flourishing Center to offer a CAPP West Coast training. I’ve been nothing but impressed and grateful. The material and research on positive psychology presented is the cutting edge and the facilitating team is the perfect combination of professionalism and genuine warmth and caring for every person in our class.This training has not only given me the information needed to propel my business into the forefront of positive psychology psychotherapy practices, it has given me the confidence I needed to stand in front of groups of people to convey positive psychology theory, concepts, and applications with the utmost confidence and conviction. The CAPP training is most thorough and practical training I’ve ever experienced in my career.
Thank you Emiliya and the Flourishing Center of New York!”

“I have two businesses, a chiropractic practice and a CrossFit gym. Wanting the best for all those I come in touch with, I joined CAPP to learn how to help my patients and gym members be happier. I highly recommend that any Homosapien (any maybe even other organisms) join this program, whether a professional or not.”
– Chris Stepien, DC, CAPP (Chiropractor, Entrepreneur)
“As a lawyer, I’ve never been a fan of “touchy feely” ideas or claims that are not supported by evidence. That’s why I’m impressed with the field of positive psychology. CAPP, in particular, provides a comprehensive and intelligible overview positive psychology. The teachers use the academic and experiential methods to teach the research and application. This makes for an approach to learning that is both practical and informative — not to mention fun!”
– Daryl Lander, JD, CAPP (Attorney)
What impact has CAPP had on you?
“The Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology program has truly been a life changing experience for me.
I am learning countless valuable tools that I find myself applying in my life on a daily basis. The personal growth that I have experienced as a result of this class has been profound and I believe will only continue to grow as I learn to master the tools that CAPP has introduced me to. The teachers are outstanding and their passion for their work shines through in their teaching. I think the CAPP course teaches invaluable tools that would be useful in anyone’s life, both personal and professional, and I could not recommend the CAPP course with more enthusiasm!”
– Eliza Fraser, CAPP (Justice Fellow)

What brought you to CAPP?
I was encircled by a community,
I made momentary friends,
I created forever relationships,
I was nurtured, I nurtured,
I learned love and I loved.”
– Claudia Ortmann, CAPP (Educator)
“Best of all, CAPP has given me the tools to blend all the areas that I love (math, psychology and neuroscience, physical movement) into a career that I never tire of and keep wanting to see what’s next. That’s least of all.
It also gave me a new way to approach my personal relationships with my parents, which I have been trying to work on for years and had little progress until CAPP. The most amazing part of the class is how it has changed the way I perceive and believe in myself.”
– David Wolovsky, CAPP (Education Entrepreneur)
What value has CAPP given you?
“Joining CAPP is the best decision I have made in a long time. I’ve found that the positive psychology principles apply across all aspects of life: professional, personal, individual, family, teams, age, gender, and more.
Learning these principles has had a huge, life changing impact on me and I know they will on others. I highly recommend this program!”
– Shari Ciapka, CAPP (Learning Manager at Cigna)
“What makes the CAPP program so amazing, is that you get to spend an entire weekend with a room full of people who all live their life with the same common belief, whether they consciously realize it or not, that the foundation to a happy life is the phrase Chris Peterson made famous, ‘Other People Matter’.
Being a part of the CAPP program is about more than learning about Positive Psychology, it is an amazing opportunity to foster connections with members of the community who share a common goal of making the world a better place, to draw inspiration in your life from the stories of those around you, and to develop authentic friendships with some truly special people.”
– David Cycon, B.S. (Engineer)
“When I think back to the day I decided to join CAPP, I never imagined just how much one seemingly small decision would send me on a trajectory that would impact thousands of people.
I’m not an author, coach, or classroom teacher, or anyone with thousands of Instagram followers. I’m a recruiter that’s transforming my network–the wild web of people that know people who know people–and introducing micro and macro positive psychology concepts into people’s lives. Ironically, participating in a program like CAPP feels like a decision for one, but it’s a decision for thousands of people who need to understand that meaning, happiness, and whole wellbeing are possible and how to begin their journey there. Knowing the thousands that are out there that have been impacted by the hundred I’ve talked to as a result of my one decision to say ‘yes!’ is the coolest part.”
– Erin Noel, CAPP
“The CAPP program completely changed my life. I finally have the tools to flourish. I also have gained a group of CAPP friends to flourish with me. I wish I had done the program sooner.”
– Francine Connolly (Homemaker)
“While enrolling in CAPP was for professional reasons, it has broadened and deepened my life immensely, both professionally and personally. It has made me a better mother, daughter, friend and human being. It has opened so many doors and delivered so many beautiful messages… that other people matter, that I matter and that I am ENOUGH.
I can’t thank you enough for sharing the gift of positive psychology to the world. THANK YOU!!!”
– Kristen DiOrio, CAPP
“I am loving being a part of CAPP.7 San Francisco. As a specialist who works with women in transition, it is wonderful to learn that science and research supports the work I have been doing for years with my clients. I particularly appreciate knowing that I can utilize and access the thousands of slides whenever I desire and integrate them into my presentations.
Each time I leave an onsite or complete a learning module, I am over-flowing with new knowledge to share both personally and professionally. The energy, enthusiasm and support of the “tribe” is icing on the cake!”
– Ilene Schaffer, MA
“The CAPP program has given me the language and tools to infuse positive psychology into my personal life and given me a deeper understanding of how to spread the skills to lead a flourishing life to my friends, family, and colleagues. I absolutely love my experience in the program and have made lifelong friendships with amazing people that are destined to change the world.
Something wonderful is happening — join us!”
