Here is the address delivered by the congress president of ICP2016, Kazuo Shigemasu, at the handover ceremony in Cape Town:

ICP2012 is a great success, and our time in Cape Town has been very productive and enjoyable, and for this success, I congratulate President of the Organizing committee, Sath Cooper, and his colleagues.

Now the handover from Cape Town to Yokohama has been completed, and we assume responsibility for the International Congress of Psychology in 2016.

During the next four years we expect significant advancements in psychology, and I hope that everyone here will come to Yokohama to share these developments.

I look forward to seeing all of you again four years from now in Yokohama.

Kazuo Shigemasu

President, ICP2016 Organizing Committee

Deadline Extended to 20 October 2014

The overall aim is to use existing IUPsyS experience and its access to international scientific and APPLIED expertise on resilience in the face of stressful and traumatic events to help researchers, educators and practitioners in the Asia-Pacific region to increase their understanding of and ability to respond to the mental health consequences of disasters so prevalent in the region. A renowned international faculty of scientists will work with participants on most recent scientific and applied scientific evidence and knowledge, and show the constraints and opportunities of dealing with particular target groups such as children and adolescents. The workshop program will further address knowledge provision, education and training in academic programs of psychology, and help develop a regional network to support continuance in scientific research and training in mental health support following disaster. Click here for the full Announcement and Call for Application.
