Regional Psychological Conferences

IAAP, through its Divisions and as a whole, contributes to international regional conferences of psychology by organizing symposia and by contributing to the funding of such conferences. These regional meetings are especially important for colleagues who may not be able to attend the world congresses, and they help to bridge the four-year gap between two ICAPs, thus facilitating continuity of contacts and cooperation.  Special attention is paid to organizing workshops and specialized seminars for new graduates in Psychology. 

Regional Meetings of Divisions

Sometimes IAAP Divisions organize theme-oriented workshops and unite colleagues from a particular region in focused scientific exchange.
