Marié Wissing is professor of Psychology in the School for Psychosocial Behavioral Sciences at the North-West University, Potchefstroom, South Africa. Her research interests are the understanding, measurement and promotion of psychological well-being and strengths in the context of bio-psycho-social health. As a member of the Africa Unit for Transdisciplinary Health Research (AUTHeR) she participates as leader of the psychology team in multi-disciplinary research projects. She developed a research program in psychofortology (i. e. the science of psychological strengths) which includes several team research projects that focus on the exploration of the nature, patterns, dynamics and enhancement of psychological well-being in various contexts. Her current research projects focus on the exploration of patterns of psychological well-being in cultural context, and on the prevalence of various levels of mental health and its association with bio-markers, socio-demographic factors and predictors of health behaviours, with a view to inform health promotion strategies. She developed several curricula for teaching of Positive Psychology in South Africa. She is an NRF (National Research Foundation) rated researcher; was a visiting professor and invited lecturer at several universities in South Africa and Europe, and serves on the editorial boards of disciplinary journals. She received the Stals prize for Psychology in 2003 from the South African Academy of Science and Art, and a reward for contribution to work wellness in 2004 at the South African Work Wellness Conference. She initiated and co-led the First South African Positive Psychology Conference in 2006. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA), and has served on the scientific committees of several international conferences.
