Aad Francissen

The Netherlands

My aim is to make a difference in the way we approach people in need of help. Less focus on problems, more on autonomy, competence and relatedness. This will bring more happiness amongst the needy and will safe on spending in care, cure and welfare.

I work for a foundation called Arcon, where I am co-founder of the 'Geluksacademie' (Happiness Academy) and Menselijke Maat. We help governments and organisations in welfare and social care to bring the science of positive psychology into their policies and daily practices.
