The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) in conjunction with its global university partners is proud to announce the Inaugural European Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences (ECP) 2014, to be held on July 24 – 27, 2014 at the Thistle Hotel Brighton in Brighton, United Kingdom.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of psychologists, medical doctors and social scientists to discuss outside the traditional confines of narrow fields of specialism, and in new directions of research and discovery in psychology and the behavioral sciences. As with IAFOR’s other events, and by bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ECP 2014 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
“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.
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:
- General Psychology
- Psychology and Education
- Mental Health
- Linguistics, Language & Psychology/Behavioral Science
- Industrial Organization and Organization Theory
- Community Development
- Qualitative/Quantitative Research in any other area of Psychology
Authors of Accepted Abstracts will have the opportunity of publishing their associated paper in the official conference proceedings, and a selection of papers will be considered for inclusion in the internationally reviewed IAFOR journals associated with the conference.
