The Asian Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences 2017 (ACP2017)

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR), in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity and insti­tu­tional part­ners, is proud to announce The Asian Con­fer­ence on Psy­chol­ogy & the Behav­ioral Sci­ences 2017 (ACP2017).

    This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will act as a cen­tre for aca­d­e­mics, prac­ti­tion­ers and pro­fes­sion­als to dis­cuss new research in Psy­chol­ogy & the Behav­ioral Sci­ences, and cre­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties for the inter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion of higher edu­ca­tion and shar­ing of exper­tise. We invite pro­fes­sion­als from all cor­ners of the world to develop poli­cies, exchange ideas, and pro­mote new part­ner­ships with organ­i­sa­tions and peers.

    The Asian Con­fer­ence on Psy­chol­ogy & the Behav­ioral Sci­ences 2017 (ACP2017) will be held along­side The Asian Con­fer­ence on Ethics, Reli­gion & Phi­los­o­phy (ACERP2017). Reg­is­tra­tion for either con­fer­ence will allow atten­dees to attend ses­sions in the other.

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Iden­tity: Per­son­al­is­ing and Sit­u­at­ing Psy­chol­ogy”

    The study of Iden­tity in Psy­chol­ogy was pio­neered by Erik Erik­son in his early work in the 1950s and 60s, such as Iden­tity: Youth and Cri­sis, and Iden­tity and the Life Cycle. He looked at three aspects of iden­tity – ego iden­tity, per­sonal iden­tity and social iden­tity. Devel­op­ing a strong sense of ego iden­tity, a coher­ent sense of who one is and isn’t, that is con­sis­tent and sta­ble over time, is a key task in ado­les­cence. Ego iden­tity can also be equated with the per­son­al­ity level of iden­tity. One’s per­sonal iden­tity is based on one’s abil­i­ties, one’s goals, and pos­si­bil­i­ties for the future and can be seen as the level of iden­tity influ­enced most by one’s pri­mary rela­tion­ships, while one’s social iden­tity is formed through iden­ti­fi­ca­tion with groups or sec­ondary rela­tion­ships, and shows one’s posi­tion within the social structure.

    In most soci­eties in the past, form­ing an iden­tity – a self-​definition within a com­mu­nity – was a straight­for­ward process. Peo­ple adopted roles that were already decided for them by their fam­ily and their com­mu­nity. In most mod­ern global soci­eties today the pos­si­bil­i­ties, choices and dilem­mas young peo­ple face make this process of iden­tity for­ma­tion much less simple.

    This partly explains the explo­sion of stud­ies on Iden­tity in Psy­chol­ogy, since Erikson’s day. This has hap­pened within all areas of Psy­chol­ogy and has also incor­po­rated the­o­ret­i­cal ideas from Soci­ol­ogy. In one sense, this inte­gra­tion of the Iden­tity or Self with diverse areas of Psy­chol­ogy ahs helped to per­son­al­ize these areas of study by focus­ing on the whole per­son with their con­tra­dic­tions and com­plex­i­ties with spe­cific con­texts and relationships.

    We wel­come your pro­posal for pre­sen­ta­tions in all areas related to Iden­tity, includ­ing but not lim­ited to:
