The PPW Research Lab has four functions that work simultaneously to help us achieve the lab's mission. As a team we work together to accomplish these four functions of the lab: Research, Assessment development, Community Services, and Professional Services.
The purpose of this
function is to conduct cutting edge research that investigates the
practical implications of positive psychology theories in improving the
wellbeing of individuals in our society. It aims to provide a platform
for passionate individuals to pursue and advance their research skills
and to produce applied research in various areas in Positive Psychology
and Wellbeing. Another goal of this function is also to increase the
number of research publications in this region.
The lab aims to validate assessments and make sure that they are suitable for the Saudi society. It also aims to create new valid and reliable assessments that accurately measure various psychological constructs.
members of the lab strongly believe in giving back to the community and
in providing opportunities for others to benefit from its activities.
Workshops, events and lectures are arranged by the lab to educate the
public on the benefits of inculcating positive psychology in one’s
everyday life, as well as raise awareness of the importance of research
in clinical practice. It also aims to provide students and academics alike with opportunities to conduct research by providing them with the necessary platform and skills.
The lab provides local experts with a virtual and physical space to help them connect with people in the society who are in need of professional services. It will provide professional and personal development workshops, training, certificates and diplomas.
