Psychology from the East, Psychology from the West International Conference 2022

with the theme:

“Psychological Perspectives of Sustainable Lives Post Covid-19 Pandemic”

The world faces new challenges with the advent of the internet and high technology. The situation has become more difficult with the Covid-19 pandemic for more than two years, which is life-threatening and raises awareness of serious health problems at the local, national to global levels. All of the backgrounds have significant implications in the psychological dimension of human lives. While the pandemic has sloped down, there is anticipation that life will not return to the same as before the pandemic. This event aims to broaden our perspectives on specific topics from different points of view from the East and the West. In addition, this event is also formed to further collaborations with national and international partners in research, education, community services, and publications on how to ensure sustainable living from psychological perspectives.

Track 1: Education and issues of human development

The pandemic brought us significant alterations in educational settings. We now realize the alternatives to face-to-face meetings, as we are increasingly being assisted by novel educational tools and technologies. Online classes bring those who are far in proximity closer, enable easier interactions, as well as introducing newer methods of learning. In addition, the whole pandemic settings may change human lifespan development in various ways. For instance, children and teenagers may interact significantly less with their peers compared to before. How do these changes impact human psychology? What are the relationships between psychology and these issues? This track broadly focused on the educational psychology and human lifespan development issues.

 

Track 2: Social lives, mental health, and well-being

During the pandemic, significant life alterations brought changes to individuals and impacted interpersonal social lives. Loneliness, depression, as well as various mental health issues arise within this era of social unrest. Although the pandemic has sloped down, there remains one important question: “what are the effects of COVID-19 pandemic on the human’s well-being and happiness?” Within this track, we accept abstracts that are broadly focused on how the current pandemic situation may impact mental health and psychological well-being. We also highlight some interpersonal, community, and social psychological issues that may contribute to people’s mental health and well-being. Also covered here, technology to ensure a better social life, mental health and well-being.

 

Track 3: Work, production, and organizational psychology

The rise of the startup culture, the increasing use of automatons, as well as the pandemic brought changes to the 21st century workforce. Various organizational cultures in today’s world may be related to intergenerational interactions and individual differences. Human performance in industries and organizations may be valued differently compared to the past. There is also a lingering issue of organizational diversity and how to better manage such diversity. How do psychology tackle these challenges in the workforce? This track broadly focuses on the relationship between human psychology and the various workforce and organizational issues of today’s world. Also covered here, technology to ensure a better life in relation to work, production and organizational psychology.

 

Track 4: Social discourse and political issues

In the current world plagued by pandemic, war, environmental problems, injustice, and economic issues, many social challenges arise. Such a world demands an answer to a question, “how can we all live together within this social unrest?” This question alone may include the discussion of many social challenges such as equality in the social and economic dimensions, political issues, movements, and conflicts within online or real-life settings, various efforts to improve societal conditions, media discourse, and many more. This track focuses on the intersection between current societal challenges, human psychology, and other interdisciplinary disciplines. Policy analysis and recommendation are also welcome in this track.

 

Track 5: Sexuality and gender construction

The United Nations has emphasized gender equality as one of its primary Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is not without reason. Around the world, women still face unequal opportunity, unequal payment, not to mention unequal treatments. Within this track, we invited abstracts that examine the question of what it means to be a woman and how psychology and related disciplines may intersect with such questions. Here, we may also acknowledge the concept of gender as social construction, which encompasses topics such as femininity and masculinity, human sexuality, and issues beyond gender-binary, such as gender identity and expression, sexual orientations, and other gender-based issues.

 

Track 6: Macro perspectives that influence the psychological dimension of sustainable living

How can people live sustainably in the current world where the occurrence of pandemic and social unrest took over much of their attention? In this track, we invite abstracts which discuss the influence of macro-perspective factors such as cultures, sociological structures and networks, economic determinants, environmental impact, evolutionary forces (and many more) on human psychology. This track broadly focuses on the notion of how human can live sustainably in today’s society, with regard to these underlying factors.
