EFPSA Junior Researcher Programme Conference 2017 – Experience Story

Categories:News

 

The EFPSA Junior Researcher Conference 2017 took place between 1st and 4th August 2017, on the campus of the Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. The Conference has been taking place annually since 2012 and is hosted by the European Federation of Psychology Students‘ Associations (EFPSA)

 

The Conference included multiple goals.

Firstly, the Conference marks the end of the year-long EFPSA Junior Researcher Programme. The Junior Researcher Programme is a project founded by EFPSA to give students the opportunity to start their own research projects. It begins with the EFPSA European Summer School in which around 35 students from across Europe start to work out their own research study in small groups, under the guidance of a Supervisor. The groups then move on to the Junior Researcher Programme to work on their researches for 12 months. At the end of the year the students present the findings of their projects at the Junior Researcher Programme Conference. The groups of this year’s JRP presented research on various topics under the theme of Cognition and Behaviour.

Secondly, for this year’s Conference, psychology students from across Europe had the opportunity to attend the Conference and were free to present their own research – Bachelor and Master Theses were very welcome too.

Furthermore, in addition to the student presentations there was room for presentations from local researchers. This year, researchers from the universities of Dublin and Limerick presented some of their research.

The Conference itself also had a general theme that the scientific programme revolves around.

This year’s theme was “Education and Development“. Talks about social initiatives in Ireland, such as social facilities for individuals with autism were also part of the programme. There were also discussions regarding the inclusion of environmental variables into psychological research and the inclusion of qualitative data into quantitative research.

The Academic Programme Manager of Microsoft Ireland, Stephen Howell, presented his motion controlled open source software with which psychological experiments and motion based games for physical exercises have been programmed in the past. Lastly, there were a number of workshops on different topics – from systematic literature reviews to music therapy and experimental learning.

In addition to a rich scientific programme, EFPSA Events are always lively as a result of the active community that is built through the numerous social events that take place. There is a great emphasis on getting to know students from other European countries and to experience the local culture. Therefore, there was also a great social programme in Dublin with board-game nights, a cultural evening (in which all attendees bring specialities from their countries), an excursion day to the Irish coast and of course a gala night on the last evening.

The Junior Researcher Conference provides great opportunities for participants to experience their first scientific Conference and present their own research, while getting to know psychology students from across Europe and to talk about how psychology is practiced in other countries as well.

World Suicide Prevention Day | Statement

Categories:News

On the 10th September since 2003, World Suicide Prevention Day has been organised by the International Association for Suicide Prevention. A day which aims at opening up conversations about suicide, and help those in darkness. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), every 40 seconds a person dies from suicide, resulting in approximately 800,000 deaths globally each year, making suicide the second leading cause of death among 15 to 29 year-olds. In addition, 65,000 people attempt suicide each year and hundreds and thousands have suicidal ideations. Unfortunately, suicide all too often fails to be prioritised as a major public health problem.

WHO developed their first ever Mental Health Action Plan for the years 2013 to 2020 with the overall aim to enhance research on mental health in order to create a world which is more effective at preventing and in tackling mental health problems. Suicide prevention is an integral part of the plan, with the goal of reducing the rate of suicide in countries by 10% by 2020.

Whilst there is no single explanation for suicide and most suicides happen impulsively, WHO sees suicide as a result of the connection between social, psychological and cultural factors, amongst others. To begin with, the health care itself fails those that need it due to difficulties in accessing it and in receiving the care needed. Easy availability to means of suicide, inappropriate media reporting on suicide, war and disaster, stresses of acculturation discrimination, a sense of isolation, abuse, violence and conflictual relationships are all suicidal risk factors. Risk factors at the individual level are also present. Mental illnesses, problems with alcohol and drugs, unusual thoughts and behaviour or confusion about reality, unstable relationships and / or trouble with the law, impulsivity and aggression, family history of suicide attempt and / or mental disorder are all suicidal risk factors. Having attempted suicide is the greatest individual risk factor. On the other hand receiving effective mental health care, having positive connections to family and peers, belonging to a community and social institutions are said to foster resilience.

Taking certain actions such as restricting access to the means of suicide, easier access to health care services, awareness of suicide as a public health issue and promotion of mental health amongst others, can indeed prevent suicide at a global level. This is a change which requires the cooperation and collaboration between multiple sectors, and thus we need governments and policy makers that support this to make change happen.

One of the objectives behind the European Federation of Psychology Students’ Associations (EFPSA) is to offer our psychological knowledge in order to make a positive and significant impact on society. As the saying goes “actions speak louder than words”, in fact, since 2013, the Social Impact Initiative team within EFPSA developed and introduced different projects: “Mind the Mind – to Combat the Stigma of Mental Disorders”, “Organised Acts of Kindness”, and “Better Together”. These successful projects have reached thousands of people across Europe; EFPSA has educated people on mental health, and contributed in creating a more understanding and acceptable society, socially aware and kinder Europe in order to prevent and create a safe place for people to talk about their emotions and mental state, and ultimately increasing wellbeing with the hope of decreasing suicide. In addition, EFPSA is also currently developing a policy on suicide prevention which will include the voice of psychological students at a European level.

On 10th September in the evening people light candles to show support for suicide prevention, to remember a loved one, and for the survivors of suicide. You, reading this position paper take a moment in silence, and keep in mind the people that suffer silently, maybe you might be one of them.

Stay! Talk! Help is out there.
(National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255)
