We are very pleased to invite you to the International Workshop on  “Child Well-Being in Formal and Informal Care and Education Contexts:  New Perspective on Intervention”, organized as a part of the activities for the European Semester of Psychology of the European Federation of Psychologists Associations (EFPA). This event will take  place on October 27th, 2023, at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, Italy.

The Workshop aims to create a common space where psychologists can interact and communicate, fostering the sharing and transmission of knowledge and skills. The Workshop is supported by INPA, ISSBD, and AIP. It will delve into new theoretical approaches to children’s  well-being and explore innovative intervention methods to tackle contemporary challenges, including the integration of new technologies. It also aligns with the long-standing commitment of the Associations involved to enhance educational practices.

We are honored to announce that our main speaker will be Prof. Tina Malti (Professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, Director of the Laboratory for Social-Emotional Development and Intervention, and Founding Director of the Centre for Child Development, Mental Health, and Policy at the University of Toronto), and we are delighted to have the participation of esteemed National and International speakers, along with a dedicated Poster Session for Early Career Scholars.
