Research addressing the influence of social change on the psychosocial wellbeing of individuals has been a major issue in psychological research, although under very heterogeneous methodological approaches and ideologies. The possibility of the development of a multidisciplinary field which could have multiple applications from clinical practice to public health management is hampered by the heterogeneity of social change itself as well as disciplinary approaches to its analysis. In spite of this heterogeneity, in the last years, the work of Pinquart, Silbereisen, Kim, Kopp, Almeida-Filho and many others, has opened new perspectives in this incipient field giving us the opportunity to design a large-scale research project. Bandura’s self-efficacy, Rotter’s locus of control and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological systems, amongst others, appear to be key concepts in the understanding of the relationship of social dynamics and individual wellbeing. Because the study will be international and cross-cultural in scope, we consider a mixed methods approach optimal as it is well suited to get at both the locally specific as well as internationally common variables. The aim of this research project is to generate preliminary cross-cultural data on which to build an international network of observatories on social change and psychosocial wellbeing. In this presentation, we will describe the objectives, hypothesis, methodology and preliminary results of this project. The idea is to not only present the project but also to have attendees interact and participate with us in the construction of the network.
