We would like to extend our warmest invitation to you to participate in the Global Psychology Symposium. The theme of the symposium is Psychology and Global Health, Changing Times, Changing Practice.

Psychology professionals play a pivotal role in the promotion, maintenance and restoration of mental health on a global scale. There is a global trend of shifting the focus of mental healthcare services from traditional settings to community based and family focused practice. Psychology professionals are increasingly called upon to respond to the needs of society and individuals in crisis, war, famine, economic turmoil, crime, murder, abuse, loneliness, and despair.

The symposium will provide a valuable opportunity for psychology professionals from different cultural backgrounds and diverse fields to explore the global impact of psychology as a field of practice on community and individual mental health care. An international perspective will be used to promote the generation and implementation of evidence based practice. Through sharing and exchange of information on the latest developments in the disciplines among experts from across the globe, the Conference will contribute to formulating global and regional strategies in advancing psychology.


Abstracts of research papers in 150-200 words are invited from Psychology Professionals, Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists and Counselors, academics, Administrators and Ph.D. scholars/Post Graduate students on contemporary issues in Psychology befitting any of the conference tracks mentioned as under.
