MCC-Mindset School of Psychology

The aim of the MCC-Mindset Psychology School is to educate the most promising and outstanding psychologists in Hungary and the profession. Accordingly, the School's dissemination, educational, scientific, and science communication activities are determined by evidence-based, interdisciplinary, and natural science approaches.

The School's students can benefit from personalized opportunities and mentoring, both domestically and internationally, with such a mindset. We are looking for students who are either trained in interpreting and evaluating scientific results and applying them in practice as practicing professionals, or who are preparing for a combined practical-scientific or scientific career. The aim of the School is to build, maintain, and continuously develop a community in which students who will shape human minds learn from each other and their instructors equally. A community that is the breeding ground and motivator for the above goals, and a source of significant professional values and relationships.

Center for Sports and Performance

The human desire to increase their performance is perhaps an eternal motivation. However, defining human performance in itself is a rather perplexing question. Surely, when raising the topic, sports may be the first thing that comes to mind. Sports are an exaggerated version of normal everyday life, a noble struggle placed within frameworks and rules according to Coubertin's traditions.

Examining the question from a wider perspective, performance is a part of everyday life and appears in all areas of life. Performance is a general term that refers to the behavior of humans or animals, as well as larger entities such as countries, communities, and organizations. Human performance is perhaps the physical manifestation of an internal, creative driving force, through which the individual strives to become better than themselves or others. It is an integral part of daily life, ranging from achieving various goals to sports performance, artistic performance, and the world of work.

The re-evaluation of performance in today's culture can lead to extreme reactions. Our performance-based world challenges both society and the individual to different coping mechanisms. Some may take up the gauntlet and respond to the challenges with adaptive reactions based on the available opportunities. Others may be crushed by the burden, and some may overcompensate and choose a path that is harmful to their mental or physical health.

The goal of the sports and performance workshop is to introduce the field of performance psychology as a new area of science in Hungary, utilizing knowledge from sports psychology. Additionally, it aims to promote competitive sports, recreational sports, and the idea of a sound mind in a sound body, as well as the spread of physical activity as medicine.
