We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Dr. Rainer K. Silbereisen as editor for the International Journal of Psychology (IJP).

The IJP is the official journal of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS) in consortium with more than 80 organisations of psychology around the globe. Together, the IJP and IUPsyS have a long history in promoting the development, representation and advancement of psychology as a basic and applied science nationally, regionally, and internationally.

For 2014, Rainer is excited to unveil a new mission statement for IJP, which coincides with the change in publisher to Wiley, and the 125th anniversary of IUPsyS:  

The International Journal of Psychology (IJP) advances psychological research of interest and relevance for the human condition around the world, and serves as the outlet for internationally relevant basic and applied research in scientific psychology.

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.
