Psychology's response in times of crisis - what has changed?

The 2020 New Zealand Psychological Society conference will highlight recent changes in psychological practise, academic research, and society more generally in recent months.

In many ways, the pandemic has pushed us into the future, with much of research, training, and practise moving online. This conference is a chance to present not only on how things have changed, but also the positives and potential drawbacks of these changes.

What changes should we embrace? What impact may the changes have on the role of psychologists, how we support the community, issues of social justice and New Zealand society in the future? How can we better address our responsibility to honour the Treaty of Waitangi and cultural diversity?

The conference presents an opportunity for professionals and students to share their insights, discuss findings in a supportive context. The conference will be a virtual event, with the theme and format change reflecting the significant changes in Aotearoa and the world in recent months.
