Europe: Cross-cultural psychology in practice – workshops with practitioners at University of Gdansk, Poland. The Culture & Psychology (C&P) School, sponsored by the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP) will be partially held in person at University Gdańsk, Poland. The two streams: Cultural-Clinical Psychology by Yulia Chentsova-Dutton & Andrew Ryder, and Acculturation through the lens of gender: Theoretical & Empirical Models by Saba Safdar and Natasza Kosakowska-Berezecka will take place in Gdańsk and our C&P School will also host local practitioners working within the field of integration of migrants and refugees (also from Ukraine) within the region of Gdańsk. Our C&P School students and local practitioners will build research projects together – this will help us emphasize the importance of the applied character of cross-cultural research and the necessity of interdisciplinary collaboration. Our goal is also to build local capacity to carry out culturally sensitive & empowering programs and interventions fostering effective intercultural contact.
