The EADP Summer Tour 2021 offers an excellent virtual opportunity for scientists to present and discuss their latest research. The overarching theme of the EADP Summer Tour 2021 “to keep tomorrow alive” aims to stimulate high-quality scientific exchange and particularly invites the submission of innovative and future oriented developmental research. 

The EADP Summer Tour 2021 is open for submissions on all aspects of developmental psychology, but especially encourages contributions with the focus on 

  • Societal Challenges (Austria, Sept 3) 
  • Development trends: concerns and opportunities (Poland, Sept 10)

It is our pleasure to invite you all to the EADP Summer Tour Conference Day "Bullying: what we know and what we can do". The Conference Day will happen on 17th of September, 2021 in a virtual form.

The Conference Day aims to explore lines, relevant findings and new theoretical perspectives in the research on bullying, its precursors and consequences, and related interventions.

Bullying is a phenomenon spreading towards the world, happening in face to face and virtual interactions and across several contexts, and with serious consequences for the health and the life-trajectories of children and young people exposed to bullying, those who bully and the bystanders. Bullying and its associations with protective and risk factors also change by age, and interventions aiming to prevent and tackle experiences with this phenomenon need to be implemented early in childhood and continue till young adulthood.

Objectives of this day are to provide participants with the opportunity to share research findings on this topic and to stimulate the scientific debate. The scientific program includes sessions with distinguished speakers who are internationally recognized as experts in the field, invited symposia, and symposia and thematic sessions with oral or poster presentations proposed by the participants.

Preliminary programme

During the three days (Sept 3rd, 10th, 17th) the EADP summer tour will take place between 9:00 – 18:00 Central European Time (CET).
