国际积极心理学协会(IPPA)简介

        积极心理学是一个令人兴奋的新研究领域,激发了全球数以千计的心理学家、科研工作者和学生们的强烈兴趣。在这个蓬勃发展的心理学新领域中,研究和实践的重点是促使个人和机构蓬勃向上的积极情绪、心灵力量和美德。自1998年开始以来,该领域已吸引到数千万美元的投资,创办了多个专业期刊,在世界著名大学中开展了该专业的硕士、博士培养的项目,并被主流媒体(包括《时代》杂志封面故事、《新闻周刊》、《美国新闻与世界报道》)广为报道。此外,国际积极心理学协会(IPPA)在短短4年间,就已从世界80个国家发展了数千名成员!

IPPA有几个相互关联的任务。首先,IPPA希望在全球范围内继续深入积极心理学研究,并确保该领域是建立在这门科学的基础之上。其次,IPPA努力推进积极心理学在不同领域中有效的实际应用,如组织行为学、心理咨询、临床心理学、商业、卫生、教育、培训等。本组织的第三个任务是促进在该领域的教育和培训。在上述各项中,我们都要创建积极心理学的严格标准,使该领域始终代表当前知识的最高水平。

IPPA的愿景是整合世界各地的积极心理学研究和应用活动。我们希望与各个国家和地区的机构合作,以协调大家的活动,而非取代这些机构。IPPA希望在全球范围内支持积极心理学的研究人员和工作人员之间的对话。

 

Positive psychology is an exciting new field of inquiry that has captured the interest of thousands of researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world. This burgeoning area of psychology focuses on the study and practice of the positive emotions, strengths, and virtues that make individuals and institutions thrive. Since its inception in 1998, the field has seen an investment of tens of millions of dollars in research, the founding of several scientific journals, the development of masters, and Ph.D. programs in key universities, and reports in major news outlets (including cover stories in Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News & World Report). In addition, the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) – in just four years of existence – has grown to thousands of members from 80 countries!

IPPA has several related missions. First, IPPA wants to further the science of positive psychology across the globe and to ensure that the field continues to rest on this science. Second, IPPA wants to work for the effective and responsible application of positive psychology in diverse areas such as organizational psychology, counseling and clinical psychology, business, health, education, and coaching. The third mission of the organization is to foster education and training in the field. In all of these endeavors, we want to create rigorous standards for positive psychology, so that the field always represents the very best levels of current knowledge.

Our vision of the organization is of one that will integrate the positive psychology activities around the world. We want to work with national and regional organizations, not supplant them, so that there is coordination of our activities. IPPA hopes to support the global dialogue of both researchers and practitioners working in the field of positive psychology.
