Participation to the Hellenic Society of Positive Psychology
The Hellenic Society of Positive Psychology was formed much earlier than its actual founding, as we realized later on. The merriment, the ardent wish and the love we foster for psychology, our sincere interest in learning and faith in this so innovative, but yet, so old movement focusing on the promotion of prosperity and happiness soon led up to the extension of our boundaries beyond the limits of a classroom, intensifying our desire to share.
The aim of the Society is the examination of the principles of positive psychology, targeting their development towards the study and support of human growth and prosperity. This aim concerns each one of us in an individual as well as in a collective level, since locating, cultivating and strengthening special features leads not only to the progress and prosperity of the person itself, but also to that of several groups and organizations in which they participate.
In case you feel that Positive Psychology concerns you as well and you wish to know what it stands for, get informed about its developments, the conferences or the latest research findings, this is the right place to participate to.
• If being a listener or a reader is not satisfying enough for you
• If you wish to participate actively, be trained, study and apply its principles
• If you believe that the work of psychology is not only about reducing psychic pain and coping with life difficulties but mainly about prosperity and development, satisfaction from life, optimism, hope and finally about the quest and conquer of happiness..
then, you are already one of us.
It is possible to participate in the Society in various ways and levels depending on your desires and capabilities. In case you are a candidate, or you already have, a PhD in psychology, or in other social and human sciences, and your work extends in the broader scientific field of Positive Psychology, you can become a regular member. If you have a master’s degree or if you are a postgraduate student, you can become a candidate member. Finally, if you are interested in the field of Positive Psychology but you don’t belong in a certain scientific field, we will be happy to have you as an assistant member.
