The Polish Association of Human Development Psychology is one of the oldest psychological subdiscipline society (https://www.psprc.edu.pl/ ) in the country. It has over 150 members and integrates the community by organizing annual conferences (the 29th conference will be held in 2021).
The Association carries out popularization activities, which include publishing a newsletter containing topical information about what is going on in the community (what’s new in the science, what is worth reading, what conferences are offered). It contains information about the activities of international associations – European Association for Developmental Psychology (EADP), European Association for Research on Adolescence and Jean Piaget Society. One can also find us on Facebook.
The Association has been issuing the nationally renowned journal Psychologia Rozwojowa (Developmental Psychology) for more than two decades. Those interested can read abstracts in English on https://www.ejournals.eu/Psychologia-Rozwojowa/. Every year we grant the Stefan Szuman Award for outstanding publications providing contributions to the knowledge of lifespan development. Polish developmental psychologists collaborate with a number of research centers around the world, for example, with the University in Padova, the University of Jyvaskyla, the Education University of Hong Kong and the Hungarian Academy of Science.
An important area of our activities is also supporting the scientific development of young researchers.
