ICAP 2016

Members of the Panel Discussion

The following participants of ICAP 206  were panelists of the Panel Discussion Sessions titled “Trends and Patterns of Psycho-Social Issues Among People in the South Asian Region in Comparison to the Rest of the World” and ” Challenges Encountered in Establishing Psychology Education and Training in South Asia on par with International Standards”

 

The discussions which were held on the first and second days of the conference respectively 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.
