EFPTA Conference 2020 dates confirmed! 16-19 April, Bratislava
Exciting news - the next EFPTA biennial conference will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia, on 16-19 April 2020!
The title encapsulates a theme that has gained much prominence in recent years:
Psychology for every day: promoting life skills through the teaching of psychology.
The Slovakian psychology teachers' association - SAUP (www.saup.sk) - will be our hosts in the beautiful capital city of Bratislava. As at our Reykjavík 2018 conference, the programme will feature keynote speakers and a range of workshops led by participants from many European countries, and all with a strong focus on psychology teaching for young people in schools, up to age 18-19 years. Our conferences are very interactive and friendly; we value discussion and sharing of ideas and experiences, as well as debate on issues affecting our discipline and our classroom practice.
For this conference we are adding a cultural programme on Thursday 16 April and Sunday 19 April, and the formal conference programme will take place on Friday 17 - Saturday 18 April.
