We will be offering a variety of half-day and full-day workshops and invite you to use this incredible opportunity to expand your knowledge and skills in cross-cultural research!

The workshops addressing the following issues:

  • How can psychology support front-line workers in the reception and inclusion of Ukrainian refugees? What do we need to know about the trauma of displacements, the geopolitical and inter-ethnic characteristics specific to the Ukrainian-Russian-European relationships, about dealing with the cultural adaptations, social and economic inclusion of refugees in host societies.
  • How can psychology contribute to sustainability challenges? What do we need to know about behavioural change, about normative influence and climate activism?
  • Promoting intercultural competencies applied to different settings: education, migration and the refugee displacement and relocation, sustainability challenges
  • Enhancing Professional and Research Skills: how to use Rhow to design and conduct community needs assessments, how to write research-based and research-dissemination policy briefs, how to engage with open science.
