    Description: This full-day workshop weaves together scientific research with the art of mindfulness and compassion practice to explore the frontiers of mind training in society. Mindfulness and compassion are now becoming part of the mainstream culture and have become increasingly popular in every sector of society–healthcare, education, business and government—so much so that Time magazine declared we are witnessing a “Mindful Revolution.” Together, we will explore the latest advances in science and clinical research to effectively integrate mindfulness and compassion into our professional and personal lives. Specifically, we will learn about current findings in neuroscience, which offer the hopeful message that we can shape and sculpt our brain based on repeated practice. Specific mindfulness and compassion practices will be taught as well as essential underlying themes to be integrated into daily life. The intention of this workshop is to explore the potential of mindfulness and compassion in transforming our individual and collective lives.

    Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify key elements of mindfulness
  • Specify why self-compassion is an essential part of mindfulness
  • Understand the scope of research findings regarding compassion, mindfulness and neuroscience
  • Explain why shame and self-judgment can be detrimental to learning and changing harmful behaviours

2018 International Congress of Applied Psychology
Psychology: Connecting Science to Solutions

    Location: Montréal
    Email: ICAP2018@cpa.ca
    Website: http://ICAP2018.com/
    Every four years, the IAAP organizes a world congress of applied psychology which serves as a review of advances in applied psychology and unites several thousand psychologists from all over the world.

    The 29th ICAP will be held in Montreal, Quebec in Canada from June 26-30, 2018, and is being hosted by the Canadian Psychological Association in collaboration with MCI Canada.

    Applied Psychology uses the methods and findings of scientific psychology to create solutions for the practical problems of individuals, groups and societies. We chose the theme for the 2018 ICAP -- Psychology: Connecting Science to Solutions -- to highlight this thriving partnership between science and practice and to extend a warm invitation to both scientists and practitioners.

    The ICAP was last held in Montréal in 1974, and we are delighted to welcome you back after all of these years to the Palais des congrès de Montréal, a modern and attractive venue right in the heart of the city. Montréal has been described as a “slice of old Europe in a pie of contemporary design”; it is a world class multicultural city and the proudly recognized centre of francophone culture in North America. Montréal was named a UNESCO City of Design in 2006, and the International Congress and Convention Association in 2009 named it North America's leading host city for international association events.
