Dr. Anita Shrivastava Kashi, Bianca Bertl, and the entire Psychology team hosted their successful 6th National Conference of Applied Psychological Research in the Middle East, in the Oasis Theatre on Thursday March 8th 2018. This conference attracted a diverse audience of approximately 50 people representing different universities, clinics, and organizations in the region and abroad.
The conference opened with an excellent keynote address by Prof. Sinéad McGilloway, founding Director of the Centre for Mental Health and Community Research, at Maynooth University, Ireland. Professor McGilloway presented “Enriching health and wellbeing in the earliest years: Engaging with communities to promote research and innovation for children and families”.
The conference programme was full with more than 15 oral presentations by academics and practitioners, 4 poster presentations, and an excellent concluding panel on the topic of ‘Work-Life Balance and Psychological Wellbeing’.
As always the conference was a MDX team effort. Thanks go to our fantastic student volunteers who epitomized professionalism to all the conference guests and delegates. We are already looking forward to the 7th National Conference of Applied Psychological Research in the Middle East in 2019!
