Studies on the role of hope for well-being

The University of Malta’s Centre for Resilience and Socio-Emotional Health recently published its fourth monograph on Hope and Well-being: Psychosocial Correlates and Benefits by Dr Alena Slezackova from the Czech Positive Psychology Centre at Masaryck University.

The monograph presents the main findings of various studies investigating the role of hope in relation to mental health and well-being and suggests possible hope-based interventions in the areas of education, psychotherapy and counselling.

The chapters on the relationship between hope and age, as well as between hope and mental health, contain some of the author’s original research.

A separate chapter is devoted to discuss the results of an extensive empirical study by the author on the connection between hope and post-traumatic growth.

The monograph may be accessed from the centre’s website below.
