Psychology addressing Society’s greatest Challenges: Call for abstracts 


Upon request by many of our international colleagues we have extended the Abstract Submission deadline towards 28 January 2017 and our Early bird registration deadline to 10 May 2017.

We trust this will provide our delegates with time to submit abstracts for Proposed Symposia, Oral and Poster presentations. We welcome contributions from any field of psychology. The thematic tracks on the website serve as inspiration but any submission outside these tracks will receive full consideration.

EFPA Statement – International Human Rights Day – December 10

EFPA urges all psychologists and their associations, to join the United Nations and to stand up for Human Rights!

The central theme of the 2016 International Human Right Day calls for people to 'Stand Up for Someone’s Rights Today', a reminder of the human rights’ violations that are happening right now over the globe.
