1st Annual Conference of the Association for Psychosocial Studies
16-17th December 2014, University of Central Lancashire
Deadline for abstracts extended to 1st October 2014
This extension has been prompted by many enquiries from people who have been on vacation in August. We will confirm acceptance of abstracts already submitted by September 5th and we strongly advise delegates to register promptly and reserve accommodation. There is some pressure on Preston hotels in December.
Registration:

 Abstracts received in September will be considered immediately upon receipt and responses processed as quickly as possible in order to facilitate early booking for accommodation and travel. Abstracts (approximately 300 words) will be considered for a 20 minute presentation in a 30 minute slot. In addition, there are opportunities to hold a workshop, symposium or experiential session (60 minutes or 90 minutes).We have also received requests for poster presentations.

Psychosocial Studies is committed to the study of the ways in which the psychic and the social are fundamentally entangled with each other. Psychological issues and subjective experiences cannot be abstracted from social, cultural and historical contexts. Equally, social and cultural worlds have psychological dimensions and are shaped by intra-psychic processes and intersubjective relations. Psychosocial Studies has strong links with various fields of practice, particularly the health professions, social work and social policy, psychotherapy and counselling, psychoanalysis, group work, organisations, management, education and leadership.
The conference will be of interest to academics and practitioners working in a wide range of areas. For example: subjectivity, intimacy and personal life; mental health and well-being; politics, citizenship and social movements; sustainability and our relationship with the environment; arts, culture and media; violence, crime and social justice; gender and sexuality; race, racism, ethnicity and religion; nations and states; migration and diaspora; youth, ageing, development and the life-course; embodiment and physical and mental health; education and learning; organisations, groups, communities and collective life.
All abstracts touching upon the conference theme of psychosocial connections are welcome; however, we are particularly keen to receive proposals addressing the following themes:
• Sustainable futures
• Psychosocial research methods
• Psychosocial perspectives on practice-based work
• Culture, media and the arts

Conference address: University of Central Lancashire, Preston PR12HE
