INDIAN PSYCHOLOGY INSTITUTE
The IPI website
If you haven't visited our website for some time, there are several other additions:
- There is a new homepage of Prof. Kiran Kumar Salagame with some of his best articles on Indian Psychology.
From other authors, the following articles have been added over the last few weeks:
- Cornelissen, R. M. Matthijs (2011) -- Types of knowledge and what they allow us to see
How our research methods affect the quality of our psychological understanding.
- Krishnan, L., Varma, P., & Pandey, V. (2009) -- Reward and punishment allocation in the Indian culture
Two scenario studies examined justice perceptions in Indian samples. It is suggested that subjects think in terms of merit and need as being similar in importance when deciding a fair punishment. Attention was drawn to several aspects of justice perception, especially those related to punishment.
- Marwaha, Sonali Bhatt (2005) -- Living with poverty: Are psycho-spiritual dimensions the x-factor in family resilience? A proposed research agenda
The article explores the sense of well-being, feelings of happiness and depression among the rural and urban poor. In the process, the extent and role of religious beliefs and practices in coping with poverty have been investigated.
- Mohan, Deepa (2005) -- Spirituality: Its impact on health and well-being
This article discusses the effect of spiritual and religious practices on human health and well-being. It reviews studies in the area of mental and physical health to suggest that health behaviour, and quality of social and family life are contingent on religious beliefs, rites and practices.
- Mulla,R. Z., & Krishnan, R. V. (2008) -- Karma-yoga, the Indian work ideal, and its relationship with empathy
The relationship of Karmayoga with the dimensions of empathy was explored. The results highlighted the differential impact of dimensions of empathy and Karmayoga was found to be similar to altruism motivation in the Indian context.
