Psychology Bridging the Gap
The European Semester in Psychology is well underway in Cyprus and action is in full spring for the Cyprus Psychologists’ Association! 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 is “Psychology Bridging the Gap” highlighting the central role that psychology can and should have in addressing key societal issues. Therefore, our planned activities are 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.
We are happy to announce that, so far, we have six confirmed meetings to be held in Nicosia during the fall:
- Standing Committee of Psychology in Education (4/10/18)
- Standing Committee on Psychology and Health (19/10/18)
- EFPA Executive Council Meeting (14-15/11/18)
- EFPA Presidents’ Council Meeting (16/11/18)
- Task Force on e-Health (16/11/18)
- Board of Scientific Affairs (17/11/18)
CYPSA members, psychology students, collaborators and public have embraced the activities planned. The two events that stand out so far are the annual hiking excursion and the seminar on inclusive education.
