European Conference on Digital Psychology:
Digital Perspectives in Psychology
VIRTUAL FORUM, 19th-20th February 2021Digital Perspectives in Psychology is the first Italian event of the First European Conference on Digital Psychology. The conference deals with the future perspectives and prospects of applying digital and technological aspects to Psychology. It will focus on E-Therapy, Videogames and serious games, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Social Media, Digital Learning and Blended Teaching. New technologies and digital innovations are drastically changing behaviours, learning methods, psychological phenomena and research, as well as diagnostic and rehabilitative techniques in psychology. Technological developments concern a double aspect: on the one hand, they are promising diagnostic and therapeutic tools; on the other, they can generate important changes, not just social changes, but psychological and mental ones too, which must be investigated. This scenario offers new challenges and new opportunities for the several theoretical and applicative fields of psychological sciences.

Keynote Speaker: Daniel FreemanProfessor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford Professor Freeman is pioneering virtual reality (VR) as a treatment for people with severe mental health problems.
