Large-scale cross-cultural research from WAPP “PPT & Psychological Well-Being”

We are pleased to announce that the World Association for Positive and Transcultural Psychotherapy has initiated, and colleagues from the WAPP Research Group have organized, an important cross-cultural study of the relationship between positive psychotherapy frameworks and psychological well-being. This is a study of unprecedented scale: we plan to collect data in 9 countries: Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Kosovo and Albania, Turkey, China, Russia, Bulgaria, Ethiopia and Romania. In each country, we aim to receive 1,000 responses. Therefore, we really need your support, our dear colleagues.

We have prepared an online questionnaire in the different languages and we ask all of you to answer it, as well as distribute it as much as possible among all your friends, relatives, relatives, colleagues and acquaintances. We are very much hoping to collect 1,000 responses from each country by the end of the fall so that we can move on to data analysis as soon as possible. We especially appeal to trainers and PPT centers with a request to connect students of your courses, colleagues.


Important aspects of the study:

  • The survey will take approx. 20 minutes of your time.
  • Please only take part in the survey if you are over 18 years of age.
  • The information you provide is anonymous and entirely confidential and will not be shared with third parties. Please be aware that your  anonymous responses in this questionnaire will be used exclusively for scientific research purposes and for the creation of academic articles. We do not collect contact information from participants (such as names or emails). The information given in this questionnaire cannot be traced back to the sender.
  • For any questions regarding the research please contact: Prof. Dr. Ali Eryılmaz; Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tugba Sarı erali76@hotmail.com or WAPP Head office at assistant@positum.org
