Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review



As mentioned in the scope of the IFCU 7th International Psychology Congress, “Catholic Universities with Psychology Departments/Academic Units have an opportunity to develop relevant conjoint work”, between each other and with other Universities. The International PhD Programme in Applied Psychology: Adaptation and change in contemporary societies is, undoubtedly, an illustration of the potential of inter-research groups cooperation. It is a Joint PhD Programme between two Catholic Universities (Universitat Ramon Llull (URL), Universidade Católica Portuguesa (UCP) with Nottingham Trent University (NTU). This poster will present a synthesis of this International Programme, its’ advantages for PhD students’ learning and development, and an example of two students being developed through this collaboration, one focused on Mental Health and Wellbeing in Schools, and another one focused on brain connectivity in Mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease. These studies are being conducted by the two first doctoral students of this Programme, and the poster will present a graphical overview of both.
