Call for Papers

In their aim to disseminate innovative research and best practices in psychology, counselling and education, Psychreg, the Asian Psychological Association, New Era University, and the Global Psychology and Language Research Association (GPLRA) jointly organised the 1st International Conference on Psychology, Counselling, and Education (ICPCE 2018), to be held in Quezon City, Philippines on the 2nd–4th August 2018. 

The theme of the ICPE 2018 is: ‘Preparing Psychologists, Counsellors, and Educators for the Contemporary Trends of the 21st Century’.

ICPCE 2018 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. 

Do you want to contribute to an inclusive, progressive and vibrant international conference that welcomes critical perspectives, values the knowledge that has been gained from experience, and values the perspective this knowledge brings to scholarly work?

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.

Fields that might be covered include, but are not limited to: applied psychology, clinical psychology, counselling, educational psychology, mental health, organisational psychology, psychometrics, social psychology, special education, sports psychology, etc. 

We welcome direct submissions of original research within the scope of the theme of the conference. Submissions may present new research, critical theory, or best practice and could highlight practical lessons learned from experience in different settings, or countries.
