At EFPA , we are committed to playing our part in ensuring the innovations and expertise of psychologists from our 38 member countries is shared among all psychologists in Europe during this coronavirus crisis, in order to benefit the citizens of Europe.
In April 2020 EFPA organized a set of free webinars the first of which, were dedicated to topical issues related to COVID-19 issues: set-up of psychological helpline, online consultations, and implications of the entire situation for mental health. The videorecordings can be found here: http://covid19forpsychologists.eu<http://covid19forpsychologists.eu/>
Considering positive feedback from the first webinars' attendees and requests from our Member Associations EFPA is organizing the second round of webinars dedicated to COVID-19 psychology related issues.
The webinars will be delivered by EFPA expert representatives from our member associations. There will be time allocated for Q&A. The webinars will be delivered in English.
