The IAFOR North American Conference on Psychology and Behavioral Sciences (NACP) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR) in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity and insti­tu­tional part­ners is proud to announce the First North Amer­i­can Con­fer­ence on Psy­chol­ogy & the Behav­ioral Sci­ences tak­ing place at the Prov­i­dence Mar­riott Down­town in Prov­i­dence, Rhode Island, United States on Sep­tem­ber 25 – 28, 2014.

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Indi­vid­ual, Com­mu­nity & Soci­ety: Con­flict, Res­o­lu­tion & Syn­ergy”

    Con­flict is an inte­gral part of the human con­di­tion. The uni­ver­sal strug­gle between our per­sonal selves – who we are as unique, sep­a­rate and dif­fer­ent from oth­ers, with our spe­cific blend of expe­ri­ences, abil­i­ties, atti­tudes, aspi­ra­tions, needs and wants – and our social selves, intri­cately con­nected to, and inter­de­pen­dent on, oth­ers – our loved ones, our friends and favoured groups, our com­mu­ni­ties and cul­tures – leads inevitably to inter­nal as well as inter­per­sonal conflict.

    Con­flict among our com­mu­ni­ties and soci­eties is also nat­ural, given that these groups are founded on com­mon­al­ity – of geog­ra­phy, val­ues, atti­tudes, beliefs, aspi­ra­tions – and dif­fer­en­ti­ated from oth­ers based on these. Diver­sity, how­ever, though it may lead to con­flict, plays an impor­tant role in the flour­ish­ing of com­mu­ni­ties and soci­eties. One of the chal­lenges of mod­ern soci­ety is har­ness­ing the syn­ergy that emerges from the inter­ac­tion of these dif­fer­ences. We hope and expect that the con­fer­ence theme will excite inter­est­ing new inter­pre­ta­tions and explorations.

    The con­fer­ence theme is “Indi­vid­ual, Com­mu­nity & Soci­ety: Con­flict, Res­o­lu­tion & Syn­ergy” and the orga­niz­ers encour­age sub­mis­sions that approach this theme from a vari­ety of per­spec­tives. How­ever, the sub­mis­sion of other top­ics for con­sid­er­a­tion is wel­come and we also encour­age ses­sions within and across a vari­ety of dis­ci­plines and fields related to Psy­chol­ogy and the Behav­ioral Sci­ences, includ­ing the fol­low­ing streams:
