Psychology can make this world a better place: How psychological approaches pay off in terms of human, social and financial capital Conclusions of the International Congress for Psychology 2012 "Serving the humanity" that ends today in Cape Town

Psychology can make this world a better place. This is one of the conclusions out of five days of meetings, talks, presentations and discussions of about 6.000 participants at the International Congress of Psychology (ICP) 2012 in Cape Town South Africa. “To meet the challenges of the changes we are witnessing across the world, be it due to scientific advances, or financial catastrophes, to political transformation, or climate change and ecological fragility, we have to come together more than ever before.” said Rainer K.

Psychology for Health – Contributions to Policy Making. September 20-21, 2012, Brussels, Belgium.

Organised by the European Federation of Psychologists Associations EFPA.
International non-governmental organization enjoying participatory status with the Council of Europe

Developing healthy life styles, preventing disease, and (self-) managing chronic disease and adverse life events are closely linked to how people think, feel and act. It should therefore come a no surprise that psychology, as the science of human cognition, emotion and behaviour, has substantial contributions to make when it comes to promoting personal and public health.

We invite experts and policy makers from European institutions, the EU member states, other European countries, the health sector and NGOs to register on-line through this website http://www.efpa.eu/PsyforHealthCongress2012. As participation is limited to 250 delegates representing different disciplines and institutions, we strongly recommend registering early (before July 15, 2012).
