PhDr. Tatiana Pethö, PhD.
At the beginning of my psychology studies, I had a clear idea of my professional future, namely how my client is lying on the couch and I am in a position as a psychotherapist. That means I’ve been thinking about the path of clinical psychologist and long-term psychotherapeutic training. Over time, I have been completely consumed by prison and forensic psychology, so far, I like to follow documents and read literature on this issue.
I became more and more aware that the more I studied, the less I knew during my studies. This knowledge therefore prevented me from finishing my studies and on this basis; I decided to study further and applied for doctoral studies in the field of social psychology and psychology of work. The beginning of the study was very unclear; it took me some time to “like” the scientific and academic career. I even considered that I would rather work in the private sector in the field of human resources. Rethinking and balancing in the field of psychology has enabled me to understand that gaining knowledge is key and my path is clear.
The main reason for embarking on a scientific career was the knowledge that psychology is a dynamic science that is constantly evolving and in this regard, it is necessary to acquire and learn new knowledge and constantly develop. My need for self-actualization will never be saturated and this the reason why am I primarily engaged in scientific research and that’s why I came at the Institute of Social Sciences CSPS SAS. My ambition is to link scientific knowledge to practice, and I see the main path in this regard through interpersonal skills in the field of education, both in the public and private sectors.
Something about me: I need to ventilate my energy constantly, so I like to play sports (Thai boxing is top), I enjoy playing the piano and I absolutely like to travel, I would go to the “edge of the world”.
