ICAP 2014

Members of the Panel Discussion

The following participants of ICAP 2014 were panelists of the Panel Discussion Session titled “Practice of Psychology in South Asia – Challenges and Achievements”.

 

The discussion which was held on the third day of conference was aimed at sharing the views and experiences of psychologists from the region on the current issues faced by this profession in South Asia and discuss strategies psychologists from different countries have developed in order to address and overcome these issues. In a region where most of the other areas of study have developed to international standards, it is worth inquiring into the reasons for the slow growth of this field.

 

Accordingly, participants from the countries where psychology is developed had the opportunity to contribute by sharing their experiences and recalling the strategies they used in battling the same issues and challenges several decades ago.
