The conference is being held by the Institute of Psychology and Education on 8th – 10th November.
Over 200 experts gathered yesterday to attend the opening ceremony and were welcomed by Vice-Rector for Innovation Dmitry Pashin and Director of the Institute of Psychology and Education Aydar Kalimullin. The Director especially thanked Professor Alexander Prokhorov and his group for their longtime contribution to psychological research in Kazan.
Dr. Prokhorov commented on the purpose of the event, “Our life is a string of psychological states – good and bad mood, joy and sorrow, fatigue and vivacity. This conference is dedicated to studies of our life’s psychological mechanisms, how they influence our working efficiency, behavior, their laws and variations. I am convinced this will be a fruitful and interesting meeting.”
Among the discussed questions are theoretical and methodological aspects of studies of psychological states, interactions between consciousness and psychological states, variations of states in professional activities, stress, diagnostics, regulations, psychological resources, and borderline conditions.
The conference is hosted by Kazan Federal University and co-organized by the Institute of Psychology of the Russian Academy of Education, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and Saint-Petersburg State University, with funding from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.
