To conclude the 50th Anniversary celebration, SoAP will host a world class symposium on the 4th of September 2015. The day will have talks from international speakers who will speak on a wide range of topics in the area of Psychology.
Our new MA in Applied Psychology (Work and Organisational Psychology/Behaviour) is aimed at both psychology graduates (W+O Psychology) and non-psychology graduates (W+O Behaviour).
Fiona Shanahan (Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellow, Resilience and Transition Research Group, SoAP), Trocaire, ALJC, CDHR, JPC-Freetown, Nancy Peddle and Lemonaid Fund have co-authored an invited policy paper to provide technical guidance to the International Ebola Recovery Pledging Conference, Thursday July 9th - Friday July 10th in New York hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The Pledging Conference aims to ensure that recovery efforts go beyond redressing direct development losses to build back better and ensure greater resilience. It will be held in cooperation with the Governments of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, and in partnership with the African Union, the African Development Bank, the European Union and the World Bank. This research was funded by an Irish Research Council New Foundations Award.
