In their aim to disseminate innovative research and best practices in psychology, counselling and education, Psychreg, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, the International Society of Psychology, Counselling and Education (ISPCE), and GetPsyched jointly organise the 2nd International Conference on Psychology, Counselling, and Education (ICPCE 2019), to be held at Kota Kinabalu campus of UMS on on 31st October–2nd November 2019.
The theme of the ICPE 2018 is: A spectrum of opportunities to meet psychology, social work, counselling and education experts
ICPCE 2019 is an interdisciplinary event that brings together scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds (e.g., public health, government and public policy, psychology, medicine, sociology, allied health professions, education, sports and exercise science, social sciences, media studies, counselling, and the lay public) to consider research, policy, rhetoric and practice within the disciplines of psychology, counselling and education.
Indeed, these three allied disciplines have never faced greater challenges than in the current environment. It is our hope that through collective efforts, we can arm ourselves with essential information so that as psychologists, counsellors and educators we will be better able to maximise the opportunities for change and improvement as they are presented.
We invite papers in English and Malay language. Paper presentations does not have to be a completed research paper; we will allow research proposals to be presented.
In particular, we are seeking submissions for paper presentations that meet the following criteria:
- Offers relevant perspectives on the application of psychology, counselling and educational principles to contemporary challenges of the 21st century
- Hinged on a robust and richly-described empirical study (qualitative, quantitative or both), or those that incorporate rigorous theoretical analysis
- Presents diverse disciplinary perspectives, methodological and theoretical approaches from within, and beyond the disciplines of psychology, counselling and education.
