The Wilhelm Salber Society (WSG)

Psychological morphology is a science in development - a concept that focuses on the metamorphoses of mental figures.

The Wilhelm Salber Society (WSG) is a non-profit association for the promotion of the Psychological Morphology founded by Wilhelm Salber. It emerged in spring 2017 from the Society for Psychological Morphology (GPM), founded in 1993, and replaced it. The WSG is an association for all institutions and individuals working in the fields of application of psychological morphology.

The WSG aims to disseminate Wilhelm Salber's work and his psychological and scientific method. It wants to keep his unique view on human soul life, art and culture alive, to promote the further development of psychological morphology and to provide an organizational framework for the professional exchange between psychologists. To this end, it regularly organises conferences, seminars and lectures and supports education and further training in psychological morphology. Last but not least, it promotes this online platform where psychologists can inform themselves and exchange information about new developments and events.

The board of the WSG is elected every two years by the general meeting. The next election will take place in 2021.
