Role of systematic observation in psychological well-being and digitization

Participants: Marina Alarcón; Oleguer Camerino; Jairo Rodríguez-Medina; Héctor Tronchoni.

The great challenge of Psychology in today's world is focused on meeting the needs of citizens, who often lack those personal, social, family, work, contextual, health, or other elements that allow them to achieve the status welfare to which they legitimately aspire. Likewise, the current technological revolution surrounds our lives, practically forcing us to enter it so as not to be left off the hook even from daily actions for which digitization is essential.
The communications that are going to be presented in this Symposium are structured around this idea, and focus on various aspects that have a common link, which is the application of the observational methodology.
In recent decades, the scientific procedure that allows systematic observation to be methodologically structured has been developed in detail, which we will also place in the framework of mixed methods, as the third great paradigm in our days.
The observational methodology will be used, both from the technological and applied aspects, especially delving into the quantizing that allows the three macro-stages QUAL-QUAN-QUAL to be formed.
All the communications presented in this Symposium show in their results the wide possibilities that are open to the researcher interested in the challenges of Psychology today: psychological well-being and digitization.
Both from the research and knowledge transfer perspective, the different authors will show the procedural applicability and the answers to the problems raised.
