The European Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences (ECP2018)


***Conference Theme – "Surviving and Thriving in Times of Change"

"The only thing that is constant is change." This is attributed to Heraclitus, 500 years before Christ, but he was not the last person to say this. More recently, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi used the same words to remind us of a basic aspect of the human condition – we need to accept and adapt to change, and cope with the stress that it brings, in order to survive and thrive.

Change is not new, but change today is unique in its pace, its extent and its impact. The pace of change in its various forms – technological change, social change, climate change – has been incredible; its extent has been global. The impact of change on humans has been extremely powerful. Our daily lives have changed dramatically and irreversibly.

One of the challenges of psychology and the behavioral sciences has been to help humans adapt to their environments, to help us be resilient in the face of challenges and failures, to help us maintain our mental health, to help us overcome the various difficulties that life brings us. All areas in the study of psychology and the behavioral sciences aim to teach us to be psychologically literate, to provide us with the knowledge and skills to survive and thrive, and to help others survive and thrive.

The European Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences 2018 (ECP2018) welcomes your proposals in all areas of psychology and the behavioral sciences, from traditional developmental, clinical, social, educational and other areas to contemporary approaches such as the recently popular mindfulness approach, which address this timeless but very timely and relevant theme.

ECP2018 will be held alongside The European Conference on Ethics, Religion & Philosophy 2018 (ECERP2018). Registration for either conference will allow delegates to attend sessions in the other.

In conjunction with our Global Partners, including the University of Sussex and Birkbeck, University of London, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2018.
