ECP 2023

18th European Congress of Psychology 2023 in Brighton

While the world has been united in its battles against a global pandemic, we’ve also never been more divided. Issues of inequality driven by poverty, race, gender, climate crisis and many more have been catapulted to the fore, showing how volatile the world can be and raising questions of how society can come together and make change.

As individuals, we’re stronger together. When we are united, we have the power to influence and advocate for change.

Psychology can be the driving force to unite and harness the power of community on a global scale.

Using psychology, we can address the issues that have been magnified across the world. As one, we can build a fairer and more sustainable world.

Reflections and Challenges: Community Psychology in the European Context

Nachdem die Tagung in Berlin erfolgreich und in schöner Atmospäre zuende ging, gleich ein Hinweis auf die Konferenz der European Community Psychology Association (ECPA) im Oktober 2017 in Newcastle:


The overall theme is Reflections and Challenges: Community Psychology in the European Context, and within this, there are four themes:
1) Community Psychology interventions in Europe – celebrate the diversity and reflect on interventions
2) What contribution does European Community Psychology make to issues like – inequality, migration, violence and censure?
3) Protection of the ‘most vulnerable’ - children, young people growing up in ‘austerity’ older people, migrants, etc.
4) Poverty & Inequality – Feminist responses to ‘austerity’ and neo-liberalism, critiques and interventions
