Welcome to the May edition of EFPA’s News Magazine

Welcome to our May edition which is full of positive news. Let us start with some encouraging news from the EFPA Presidents’ council meeting in Zürich of May.


Our colleagues from the UK will organize the European Semester in the first half of 2018 and the new BPS President Nicola Gale announced closer collaboration with the European colleagues in EFPA.


The German colleagues presented a paper on ‘Data management in Psychological Science’ and the Executive Council announced the signing of a Consensus statement with 6 stakeholders and WHO Europe agreeing on working together ‘towards an effective and influential mental health workforce in Europe’.   


While our friends from EAWOP just finished their congress in Dublin - with a nice moment of commemoration of Robert Roe – our Dutch colleagues are in full preparation of the EFPA congress in Amsterdam.

More than 40 events are organized by EFPA groups, there will be different ‘tracks’ during the congress, like the one on ‘Human Rights’, or ‘Ethics’ and ‘Psychology and Health’. 


We welcome the EU Commissioner for Health Vytenis Andriukaitis who will speak at the Opening ceremony. Well known experts like Noble Prize winner Edvard Moser and EFPA award winners Dave Bartram, Susan Fiske, David Ebert, the organization CON AMORE and Comenius award winner 2015 Pauline Jansen will give their keynotes. Follow the program on the ECP website and on Facebook.


The next edition of the newsmagazine of end of June will be completely devoted to the European Congress of Psychology, where we will list the most important events and share practical information.  


We hope you find this new edition enjoyable and informative.

EFPA Task Force Sport Psychology meeting in Athens


April 21, 2017


At the offices of the Greek Association of Psychologists.

The Greek association of Psychologists kindly hosted the meeting of the TF sport psychology.

The Greek member Maria Psychountaki organised the meeting and a dinner was offered by the president, Vassiliki Boukouvala and the managing council of the association.

EFPA created a Task Force in Sport Psychology in 2011 to collect information on the education, training, supervision, professional practice and organizations in sport psychology in Europe. The Task Force in Sport Psychology was asked to suggest improvements in the education and training of sport psychologists in Europe in collaboration with sport organizations (e.g., European Federation of Sport Psychology, FEPSAC, International Society of Sport Psychology, ISSP). Sport psychology is rapidly expanding as increasing numbers of psychologists are required and employed by sports club, federations, and organizations.
