IACCP Culture and Psychology Summer School


The Culture & Psychology (C&P) School, sponsored by the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP), is open to students at Doctoral and Masters levels who are interested in culture and psychology. Workshops are geared toward students of varying levels, from early graduate studies to advanced or senior graduate studies.

The C&P School provides a research-intensive and interactive experience for participants from various universities to learn from one another and to receive specialized training from experts in different fields that incorporate culture in their study of psychology. The School takes place from July 13 to 15, 2019, preceding the IACCP XXII Regional conference (July 16-19) to be held at the Universidad de Costa Rica.

The C&P School focuses on community engaged scholarship and supports the development of broad research skills, international collaborations, and preparation of scholarly manuscripts. Our goal is to stimulate networking and interactions with peers and instructors in a nurturing and productive environment. We also aim to emphasize the importance of the applied character of research and the necessity of interdisciplinary collaborations.
