The 2013 International Congress on Clinical and
Counselling Psychology (CPSYC) will take place in
Istanbul, Turkey, on
August 06th-09th, 2013. This
congress will not only build on the success of previous
C-crcs conferences and congresses, but will also seek to
raise the bar in international exchange of ideas,
collaborations, and cooperation among academics, clinical
psychologists, counselling psychologists, and other
The 2013 congress will provide unrivalled opportunities for participants to rub minds and bounce off ideas with each other. It will seek to facilitate discussions including challenges to clinical and counselling psychology internationally, providing a forum for scientific debate and constructive interaction in a multicultural environment such as Istanbul. The congress will provide a platform for educators, researchers, students, and practitioners to present their work; to exchange knowledge, ideas, and experience; and to identify solutions to existing challenges in clinical and counselling psychology globally. Doctoral candidates are particularly invited to present and discuss their research ideas and work in progress.
Previous C-crcs conferences and congresses were hugely
successful, and CPSYC 2013 promises to be another high
quality event. Istanbul is a special city and one-time
European Capital of Cultural City, with its position as a
bridge between Europe and Asia--the Western part of the city
is in Europe, and the Eastern part in Asia. The city's
important historic buildings are attractive to all visitors.
I hope that the accessibility of the conference venue and its
proximity to the city's major attractions provide additional
reasons to attend.
As in previous conferences and congresses of C-crcs, abstracts from the 2013 Congress will be published by C-crcs, and full-text papers will be provided by Elsevier in the CPSYC 2013 Proceedings and by C-crcs in the peer-reviewed Volume as a book chapter.
