About the special issue

The collection of articles in this special issue were part of a presidential symposium organised by the first author and presented at the Canadian Psychological Association Convention on June 8, 2007, in Ottawa.

The articles review research in a variety of contexts on various important themes, such as work, education, relationships, parenting, health, environmental issues, and psychotherapy. A concluding article provides some reflection on these articles and proposes directions for future research.
