Call for Division´s Special Newsletter Number for Cancun 2020

Dear Division 15 fellow colleagues. As you know, one of IAAP´s main reasons d´être is to create a space for knowledge sharing. We really believe that we all have a lot to say in the development of tomorrow´s psychology, no matter where we live, where we have studied, where we work. Because, the world, as the mankind, is only one. We are all the equal, but at the same time, each culture in which we live is completely unique. And, as psychologist, we should be able to learn the most from this beautiful diversity, to learn from each other. We all have a fundamental piece of the psychology puzzle!

As all of you are aware, next year, IAAP is celebrating its 100 anniversary! As the central part of the celebrations, Cancun 2020 will be the meeting point of the psychological knowledge around the world and this congress is already on the run. Thus, we need you for being an active part of it! Hence, we are going to launch a special Division 15 Newsletter in November 2019 and we´d love to count with you for it.

This special number will be dedicated to one very specific topic: psychology & well-being. We would like to know which you consider is the main psychological challenge for the people in your country and how psychology can help in overcoming it. You can send us a research paper you have published about it, an opinion article, a personal experience…All counts for increasing our knowledge!

Send the information to Division´s president´s mail: paltungy@ucm.es. And, as always, any initiative will be more than welcomed. Let´s keep on working for another 100 years of applied psychology!
