The Implications of Socioeconomic Inequality for Psychological Well-being

The goal of theWinter School is to provide participants with a multidisciplinary perspective on how socioeconomic inequality impacts psychological well-being. In addition, one of the goals of the winter school is to establish and develop a series of group projects to foster new collaborations and ideas to improve well-being of people who are hit the most by inequality.

Leading international researchers will be among the speakers of the winter school. Psychology can provide important theoretical and practical tools to understand and counteract the effects of socioeconomic inequality and the winter school will enhance participants’ knowledge in multiple ways by combining several approaches. In addition, practitioners who work in the field on projects that improve social connection among people will be among the speakers. They will share their experience in order to explain what it takes to make a real impact on people’s lives.

The deadline to apply is set for December 20, 2016.
