Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Europe’s lead­ing con­fer­ence on health psy­chol­ogy will be held in Li­mas­sol next week, with 700 del­e­gates at­tend­ing the Euro­pean Health Psy­chol­ogy So­ci­ety (EHPS 2015) congress tak­ing place from Septem­ber 1 to 5 at the Grand Re­sort.

Ac­cord­ing to the or­gan­is­ers, EHPS is a pro­fes­sional or­gan­i­sa­tion formed to pro­mote em­pir­i­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal re­search in health psy­chol­ogy. Each year a four-day con­fer­ence is or­gan­ised at lo­ca­tions across Europe, with the aim to present the most im­por­tant de­vel­op­ments in the field.

The theme of EHPS 2015 is “Prin­ci­ples of be­hav­iour change in health and ill­ness” with pre­sen­ta­tions from world renowned re­searchers, pro­fes­sors and pro­fes­sion­als. Some of the key­note speak­ers in­clude Prof. Howard S. Fried­man, Prof. Su­san Michie, Prof. Ro­nan O’Car­roll and Prof. JoAnne Dahl.

The EHPS 2015 also in­cludes ten par­al­lel ses­sions with more than 300 oral pre­sen­ta­tions from a wide range within health psy­chol­ogy top­ics and hun­dreds of posters di­vided in three in­ter­ac­tive ses­sions. EHPS 2015 is also ex­pected to bring more ex­per­tise and in­no­va­tive re­search through sym­posia, round­tables, par­tic­i­pa­tory ses­sions, over­view talks and work­shops.

The con­fer­ence is co-hosted by the Univer­sity of Cyprus (Depart­ment of Psy­chol­ogy) and the Cyprus Psy­chol­o­gists’ As­so­ci­a­tion. The con­fer­ence co-or­di­na­tors are Easy Con­fer­ences.
