Edge of Knowledge: The Research Center at PSP

The Purpose

Through the Edge of Knowledge center, members of the PSP community are exploring the application of “cutting edge” theory and research in several domains including  clinical, health and organizational psychology.

Research at the Edge

PSP research is embedded in recognition that valuable knowledge reside near some edge. Knowledge exists in sectors where we know that we don’t know and where we discover that we know more than we were initially aware.

At PSP and the Edge of Knowledge center we also venture into the frontier sector where we are vaguely aware of a lack of knowledge and need to know.




The Outcomes

Edge of Knowledge projects lead to production of social media documents and publications in the Library of Professional Psychology—and creation of cutting edge workshops and certification programs.

Current Research Projects

Developmental: Models of Generativity, Enduring Relationships

Appreciative: Psychology of Hope, Freedom

Health: 70 Sleep Pathways, Tiers of Health Psychology

The Professions: Development of Coaches, Professionals Quad

Public Policy: Assumptive Worlds of Psychopathy, Human Embedded Technologies
