ArtykuĹ omawia piÄÄ fundamentalnych wymiarĂłw programu formacyjnego zwanego âAktywny Program Pozytywnego Rozwoju Osobistegoâ (APPRO). Adresowany jest on nie tylko do Ĺrodowiska koĹcielnego, ale rĂłwnieĹź do kaĹźdego, kto chciaĹby wzrastaÄ w dobrostanie ludzkim. APPRO wykorzystuje wiedzÄ wspĂłĹczesnych nurtĂłw psychologicznych, w ktĂłrych znaczÄce miejsce zajmuje psychologia pozytywna. PoĹrĂłd piÄciu wymiarĂłw istotnych w formacji ludzkiej kandydatĂłw do kapĹaĹstwa i Ĺźycia zakonnego sÄ: wdziÄcznoĹÄ, zarzÄdzanie czasem, przyjmowanie wyzwaĹ, uczucia oraz duchowoĹÄ. Wszystkie te elementy sÄ integralnie zwiÄzane z ludzkim dobrostanem, a poĹrednio z jakoĹciÄ powoĹania i przeĹźywaniem misji w KoĹciele.
