Conference 2017
Each year the Association of Psychology Students Amsterdam (VSPA) organizes an international scientific psychology conference. This year's subject will be Addiction. Most people will, at some point in their lives, have to deal with addiction or someone in their environment with an addiction. It is a subject that had been highlighted on social media, but what do you really know about it? In this conference we hope to address the subject of Addiction and the psychology behind it from various perspectives to answer questions like; Which changes in the brain occur due to addiction? How do addictions differ among each other? We will look at Addiction from different fields within psychology: Biological psychology, sexology and clinical psychology. Four different lectures will be given, each focused on a different addiction or perspective and one of them will be highly interactive. The lectures will be about one hour with the possibility to ask questions.

The conference will be held on the 15th of May in “CREA” on the Roeterseilandcomplex in Amsterdam (address: Nieuwe Achtergracht 170).
