International Psychology & Law Worldwide Conference, August 4-7 2015
The International Conference on Psychology & Law will take place from August 4-7, 2015.
Friedrich Lösel, Chair of the Organizing Committee, writes “At this Conference we will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the launch of the European Association of Psychology and Law (EAPL) at Nuremberg, Germany. We are grateful that the American Psychology-Law Society (AP-LS), the Australian Association of Psychiatry & Psychology of Law (ANZAPPL) and the P & L Division of the German Psychological Society are co-hosting this event together with EAPL.”
The Division of Psychology & Law of the German Society of Psychology is co-hosting the Nuremberg event. This is a great opportunity to learn about what is going on in Psychology & Law in the country where psychology as an academic discipline was established in the 19th century by Wilhelm Wundt and where Hugo Münsterberg, William Stern, and other famous scholars of forensic psychology originated.
The scientific program of the conference will cover the entire breadth of Psychology & Law. Sessions will include topics such as eyewitness testimony, criminal responsibility, delinquent development, risk assessment, offender treatment, juridical decision making, and psychology in family or civil law cases. In addition, contributions on terrorism, violence at schools, psycho-legal issues of migration, early prevention, sexual offending, hooliganism, and brain research on the concept of free will will be included in the programming for this international event. Given that the field of Psychology & Law is not narrowly defined, neither by areas of law and psychology nor in relation to other disciplines, such as psychiatry, sociology, neurobiology, public health, social work, pedagogics, political and economic science, all colleagues from neighbor disciplines who work on topics in the interface of Psychology & Law are invited to attend this event in Nuremberg.
