Positive SELF and Well-Being

Self-concept and related self-belief constructs emphasise how healthy, normal, and exceptional individuals can get the most from life. As well as being some of the oldest constructs in the social sciences, they are at the very heart of the positive psychology revolution.

The SELF Research Centre, now housed within IPPE, has been the international leader in self-concept research for the last 25 years, with over 7,000 members from 45 countries.

By drawing on advanced quantitative methodology and applying it to substantive and policy-oriented research, this program emphasises a methodological-substantive synergy.

Our aim is to build and increase individual, family, workplace, and community capacity.
