Ordine Psicologi Piemonte: the activities for the International Day of Psychology 2021

11 October 2021

Now in its sixth edition, the National Day of Psychology, which falls on October 10, this year provides a rich and extensive program sponsored by the Order of Psychologists of Piedmont, under the patronage of the Piedmont Region, the City of Turin, the University of Turin and the Department of Psychology, University of Turin.

An important event that this year has as its theme: “Helping the Psyche to Help Life“. The goal is to enhance the role of psychology in building the well-being of individuals and the community, a role that will be addressed over four meetings scheduled for the month of October.

Given the social context in which we live today, which still suffers the aftermath of a global health emergency, the course designed and created by the Order of Psychologists of Piedmont is full of free appointments, aimed at all generations and social realities in the area.

The meetings through which the program winds will see the participation of prominent personalities and are focused on four themes: writing, music, sports and environment.

They began last October 6th when, at the Holden School, the first meeting was held: The Soul of Words…between healing and writing, dedicated to writing as a practice that builds, strengthens and heals. On the following day, October 7, at the Palazzo della Luce, the meeting entitled: Sounds, notes and calls of Psychology. How music contributes to our well-being, dedicated to music and its ability to express and communicate experiences and feelings going beyond all social differences.

The program will conclude with the last two meetings scheduled for Monday, October 11 and Friday, October 22.

The meeting of October 11, at the Headquarters of the Medical Association, will focus on sport, its value and its continuous search for balance between mind and body and the explanation of what is the role of psychology in human performance.

The meeting of October 22 will also be held at the headquarters of the Medical Association, starting at 9:00 am, and will focus on environmental issues and what is the sense of awareness towards the planet and its being a key element to promote the best social welfare.

Mediability can only be proud of its well-established role of Press Office and Press Review for an organization as important as the Order of Psychologists of Piedmont, which with its work contributes to the growth and scientific and social care of our territory.
