About us

The Association of Patristic Psychology Praxis was set up in August 2013 in Bucharest, by Simona Ciobanu PhD, together with some other supporters of this field.

It is an association with an interdisciplinary profile consisting mostly, but not exclusively, of theologians and psychologists.

Our head office is in Romania and we are developing as an international research platform.

The association represents a pioneering approach in its field, both nationally and internationally, and finds itself at the first stage of development.
