PsyDESK - PRESENTATION

PsyDESK was founded with the aim to develop tools that would facilitate Mental Health specialists & independent researchers, as well as, research centers and organizations in the fields of psychology and social science

Vision and Objectives


 

We believe that there are many beautiful minds out there, many of them not working in academic/research circles, but with original ideas, sharp observation skills, and capable of making significant contributions based on their knowledge and rational way of thinking. However, outside academic/research circles, the opportunity to test new ideas and working hypotheses is limited, requiring more time and considerable expense. The result can be that active scientists loose the chance to contribute to the improvement of existing theories or the development of new scientific paradigms.

PALP is the first application that is addressed primarily, but not only, to psychotherapists. It developed to cover four major needs: The need for a documented evaluation of therapist's intervention over time, the need for a comprehensive picture of interventions and for the identification of psycho-social factors that facilitate or hinder the development of certain mental disorders, the need to reduce the time of collection, data entry and statistical processing each independent researcher or team of researchers spend for research purposes and the need for a flexible tool for use by people who are not so familiar with the use of a computer and with the use of statistical science in their professional practice.

PsyDesk now cooperates with one of the greatest centers of Cognitive Bahaviour Therapy in Greece. The Institute of Behaviour Research & Therapy decided to incorporate PALP to its daily therapeutic sessions. The Department of Adult Therapy offers psychotherapeutic interventions to help houndreds of troubled individuals to cope with, for a small nominal fee.

Michael Batakis - Curiculum Vitae

Michael Batakis has studied Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, Social Theory of Psychoanalysis (Lacanian). One of his central interests is the psychological research using specialised software, as he firmly believes that the great innovations in science and life are possible by people who are passionate about more than one scientific discipline and who are motivated and characterised by the happiness of understanding.
