The Slovenian Congress of Psychologists is back after two years of pandemic-related challenges. The event is set to take place on the Slovenian coast at the Congress Centre Bernardin in Portorož from November 16th to 18th, 2023
. The scientific programme committee has chosen the theme of "I and the environment: interplay of inner and outer worlds"
. This theme encompasses a variety of topics such as an individual's experiences in social, natural, built, and virtual environments. It also includes topics such as an individual's response to different events in these environments, the influence of social media, and the role of the natural environment in an individual's balanced life. Submissions for the Congress can explore ideas such as the effects of wooden elements in home environments, the impact of a park view in a work environment, and the role of natural events on an individual's health. Abstract submissions are welcome.SUBMISSIONS AND REGISTRATIONS
