PsychAlive:  Psychology for Everyday Life

Our desire to discover who we are – why we feel and act the ways we do – is what leads us to a meaningful and vital existence. PsychAlive was created to assist you in this personal journey by providing a place where people can learn to take an active, introspective approach to their lives. The articles, blogs, videos, quizzes and interactive workshops featured on PsychAlive introduce visitors to sound psychological principles and practices, while offering an insightful means of coping with life’s everyday problems. The tools available on PsychAlive are designed to help people understand the emotional dynamics that operate within us and the limitations that restrict us in our daily lives. By helping us to recognize what’s at the core of our emotional struggles and to target the specific ways we limit ourselves, PsychAlive encourages us to understand and challenge the deeper issues that keep us from living a life that is as joyful, rewarding and meaningful as it could be.

International Positive Psychology Association

International Positive Psychology Association

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.

Psychonomic Society

Psychonomic Society

The Psychonomic Society is open to those who are interested in experimental psychology, but mainly its members work with cognitive psychology.  The Psychonomic Society “broke off” from the APA in 1959 due to the APA being focused on clinical psychology.

Also, to be a member of the Psychonomic Society, a member must hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in their field and have published significant research other than their dissertation.

World Association of Psychoanalysis

world of associations wapThe World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP) is a societal-organizational website for those who are interested in and heavily influenced by psychoanalysis.  The WAP is working on a Members Area, and already have a Local Directory created.

Also included within this huge site is different videos, publications and news.  There are also different symposiums and conferences from many different countries.  Speaking of these different countries, the WAP has FIVE different translations  available:  English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.

While the copyright of the website started in 2008, it does appear some of the information does need to be updated, such as some of the translations are not copied over to the correct language, and the Members Area is not complete, but it does look like work is being done and there appears to be a plethora of information available as it is.
