A viagem que mais contribuiu para quem eu sou: explorando as dimensões da Experiência Turística Eudaimônica

Palavras-chave: Experiência turística, Eudaimonia, Psicologia positiva

Resumo

Com base em uma revisão do conceito de eudaimonia, o estudo propõe uma definição para o constructo experiência turística eudaimônica e identifica 15 potenciais dimensões constituintes do constructo, a partir de uma extensa revisão da literatura nos domínios da psicologia positiva, psicologia existencial-humanista, psicologia do desenvolvimento (estudos sobre a formação da identidade na linha Eriksoniana) e do turismo (estudos sobre experiência turística transformadora). Com o objetivo de validar as dimensões teorizadas, um levantamento com 569 sujeitos foi empreendido e a análise fatorial exploratória sobre os dados extraiu seis fatores (Alteridade e Benevolência, Intimidade e Pertencimento, Significância pessoal, Abertura ao novo, Autonomia e Amadurecimento) que explicaram 62,636% da variância total. Com forte fundamentação teórica e empírica, o estudo buscou contribuir com o entendimento dos processos transformativos proporcionados pelas experiências turísticas, fornecendo uma estrutura multidimensional para experiências eudaimônicas em contextos turísticos.
