32nd Annual PAPJA Convention

January 25-26, 2019

DAY 1 - SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia
DAY 2 - National University, Manila


How can I participate as a professional?

We are inviting psychologists to run a workshop for the 31st Annual Convention of the Psychological Association of the Philippines-Junior Affiliates (PAPJA) on January 26, 2019.

The PAPJA Convention is an annual gathering of Psychology undergraduate students in the Philippines. The convention serves as an important venue for the sharing of recent developments in the field of psychology as a science, exposure to the practice of psychology through workshops, exchange of ideas, and fellowship. The workshops are an integral part of the PAPJA Convention and seek to offer students from different parts of the country an opportunity to learn new skills and new knowledge they may otherwise not learn in the classroom. This year, the PAPJA will offer around 120 simultaneous workshops for more than 7,000 Psychology students from all over the Philippines.

A workshop is intended to develop specific skills or competencies in a particular area of practice in psychology. Though it should share new knowledge or expertise in an area of psychology, it is not meant to be a lecture or a sharing of research endeavor. All workshops will be held from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon and from 1:00-4:00 in the afternoon of Saturday, 26 January 2019. The venue will be at National University, Manila. Facilitators should expect about 40 to 55 participants per workshop (depending on size of the available rooms). The PAPJA steering committee will endeavor to assign student-volunteers to designated room assignments.

Professionals interested in running a workshop need to send their workshop abstract (100 words or less) to papja.org.ph/papja-convention/abstract-submission/. The deadline for submission of the workshop form is on November 24, 2018. All workshop abstracts will be evaluated and screened by the PAPJA Workshop Committee. Selected workshops will be announced by December 7, 2018. All workshop facilitators will also be given an honorarium of P4000 for their generous sharing of their time and expertise.

We look forward to working with you soon!
