It is a great honour to serve as the President of the EADP. I want to once more thank you all for the great conference in Braga and look forward to meeting you all in Utrecht 2017! As the new President my aim is to build bridges with the other societies such as International Society for the Study of Behaviroal Development (ISSBD), EARA, SRCD and SRA. For example, next summer we will have the 1st ISSBD-EADP joint symposium in Vilnius focusing on Peers, where ISSBD and EADP are present as institutional peers.
Second, my plan is also to build bridges with the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA). New President of the EFPA Telmo Mourincho Baptista, coming from Portugal, is
eager to collaborate with our society, EADP. EADP is now associate member of EFPA. In addition, my plan is to build bridges between EADP and policy, Refugee crisis being one key topic,
global recession as another and the role of young people as drivers of change as third. Fourth, I want to get our wonderful alumni on board. And finally, last but not least, the young generation
is our future! I also aim to build new ways to achieve these goals for example methodological webinars as one model for capacity building.
Let’s work together.
very best wishes
President of EADP
The ECDP2017 website is now online. We would be more than glad to welcome you in Utrecht next year:
With lots of information on the Association scientific activities, the first number of the EADP Newsletter is available. Read about our initiatives and a humorous and vivifying tribute about the history of EADP.
The newsletter will certainly give you all a relaxing reading at this summer season.
SRCD funds an experts’ meeting on the topic of immigrant youth adaptation and well-being. The main goal of the meeting is to generate new insight on explanatory mechanisms on what is presently
known about positive youth development (PYD) and positive adaptation of immigrant youth from a global perspective. The meeting is a collaboration between SRCD, the European Association of
Developmental Psychology (EADP), and the European Association of Research in Adolescence (EARA).
