The Hermanos Saiz University of Pinar del Rio holds from November 6-8, an event organized by the Cuban Psychology Society in the province in order to relate Psychology with other sciences and build a space to reflect, exchange and socialize experiences and research results.
“This event was planned in 2015 aimed at celebrating a session every two years. Then we decided to build a space of our own to show the development of Psychology in Pinar del Río and the impact on society”, explained Master Leydi León Veloz, president of the Provincial Psychology Group. The event does not have a name yet, we are thinking about it and will be announced in the closing session and so the second edition, to be held in 2019 will have a name.
Professionals of different areas participate in this first edition, among them economists, lawyers, doctors and teachers and important Cuban psychologists such as Doctor Patricia Ares Mucio, president of the national society.
The three-day event includes conferences and debates enriched by the research experiences of each participant.
Delegates from Santiago de Cuba, Villa Clara, La Habana, Mayabeque, and Artemisa take part in the sessions, as well as representatives of different municipalities of the province.
“This event will favour the creation of new projects to work with during the next years and will be evaluated in the next edition.
“The goal is to make Psychology a tool for people and for different specialities to contribute to the wellbeing of the society”, said León Veloz.
