The concept of 360° was launched in 2014 as a collaborative effort between Willingness Malta and Betapsi – Psychology Students’ Association, as an approach whereby different relevant and current topics are tackled from a multidisciplinary point of view. This means one topic is discussed from various perspectives of professionals in numerous fields, including psychology, health, social work, youth work, medicine, law, criminology, religion, sociology, philosophy, and various others.
360°’s mission is to create educational and informative events which are not based on one sole perspective, but making use of a multifaceted and interdisciplinary approach. The vision for this approach is to encourage diversity in both knowledge and skill, while gathering a deeper appreciation of other disciplines and the potential advantages in allowing professionals to accommodate larger functional understanding of material and integrated knowledge, instead of working behind isolated perspectives.
Under this approach an annual 360° Conference, with a teaser 360° Workshop on the same topic are held.
