Positive Psychology Centre

The Positive Psychology Centre was founded in 2017. It has published research studies on hope, fear, and motivation in partnership with Bucks New University. Today, it consists of 3 Positive Psychology Research & Practice Initiatives in the early stages of development, one of which is the Violence & Post Traumatic Growth Initiative. Two further initiatives on Positive Ageing and Positive Organisations are under development.

The Centre values qualitative and quantitative research methods related to practical applications in real world settings. It also encourages inter-disciplinary research approaches and collaborations with those operating in other fields of Psychology, as well as other professional and academic domains related to Positive Psychology in Research and Practice. Its aim is to offer a bridge between the rigorous research methods of academia and the dynamic needs of professional practice.
