 Psychology Bridging the Gap 

During the first trimester, CYPSA has organized an array of events including a networking event, a training on child neuropsychological assessment, public talks on social identity in Cyprus and resilience in children, and workshops for people with heart failure problems in collaboration with the Cyprus Association for Heart Patients, the Cyprus Society of Cardiology, the Department of Nursing of the Cyprus University of Technology, the Cyprus Dietetic and Nutrition Association, and the Department of Health and Life Sciences of the University of Nicosia.

The theme of our European Semester was “Psychology Bridging the Gap” highlighting the central role that psychology can and should have in addressing key societal issues. Therefore, our activities were mainly around building on existing and forming new collaborations with community actors, as well as with our European colleagues, and showcasing what psychology has to offer.
