Nafsaniyoun International Psychology Conference 2021
"We are what we are because we have been what we have been, and what is needed for solving the problems of human life and motives is not moral estimates but more knowledge.” – Sigmund Freud
The world is now living in a common ordeal, the COVID-19 pandemic, which has cost humanity millions of victims, and major economic, health, educational, and social crises. These traumatic events for all humanity and the harsh measures taken by countries to confront the virus had a powerful impact on the individuals’ mental health and triggered psychological disorders, relational problems, and changes in the behavior of children and adolescents. What we’re witnessing now is a high demand for psychological interventions to get psychological support and alleviation of fear and the existential anxiety that afflicted everyone.
Because of this continuous and escalating scene for more than a year and with the start of the vaccination process against COVID-19 all over the world, we, Nafsaniyoun Center, decided to organize an international conference on the 6th, 7th, and 8th of May 2021 to display and discuss all psychological and social changes and ways to confront them, by hosting a group of psychologists and thinkers.
This conference is just like a compass: it will guide us on the way we will work in the future in the psychological sector. Researchers, experts, psychologists, institutions, and associations concerned with mental health from various therapeutic schools and intellectual currents from all over the world will join us directly through Nafsaniyoun electronic platform, which can accommodate thousands of participants.
