‘Preventive measures can reduce the incidence of depression and anxiety with 25% or more’. ‘Health damage due to alcohol abuse, smoking and overeating can be lowered by changing people’s behaviors and living environments’. These are conclusions from the expert conference ‘Psychology for Health’, organized by the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations (EFPA) in Brussels on September 20-21, 2012.The conference was attended by 75 psychological experts, representatives of the health sector, the World Health Organization, and policy makers from the European Commission.
How does one find a psychologist? And how does one know that a psychologist is qualified and competent in a certain field of practice? Many European countries have a law protecting the title of psychologist and keep a register of psychologists allowed to use this title and/or practice as a psychologist, and an increasing number of psychologists have their own website where they describe their services and qualifications. EuroPsy provides a solution at European level and enables the public to check the credentials of psychologists.
EuroPsy, the European Certificate in Psychology, has been developed to create greater clarity and uniformity across European countries. It shows that the holder has received a high standard of education and training in psychology and follows the ethical code of psychologists. It also requires psychologists to stay up to date through Continuing Professional Development. EuroPsy is designed to supplement national standards rather than replace them. Since its requirements are the same across Europe, EuroPsy is not only helpful in the home country, but also when psychologists work in another European country.

Psychology can make this world a better place. This is one of the conclusions out of five days of meetings, talks, presentations and discussions of about 6.000 participants at the International Congress of Psychology (ICP) 2012 in Cape Town South Africa. “To meet the challenges of the changes we are witnessing across the world, be it due to scientific advances, or financial catastrophes, to political transformation, or climate change and ecological fragility, we have to come together more than ever before.” said Rainer K. Silbereisen, outgoing President of the International Union of Psychological Science IUPsyS. “We have to pool our knowledge and expertise, and we have to learn from one another — we have to recognise the contribution all areas of the world can make, and understand the importance of diversity.”

Developing healthy life styles, preventing disease, and (self-) managing chronic disease and adverse life events are closely linked to how people think, feel and act. It should therefore come a no surprise that psychology, as the science of human cognition, emotion and behaviour, has substantial contributions to make when it comes to promoting personal and public health.
We invite experts and policy makers from European institutions, the EU member states, other European countries, the health sector and NGOs to register on-line through this website http://www.efpa.eu/PsyforHealthCongress2012. As participation is limited to 250 delegates representing different disciplines and institutions, we strongly recommend registering early (before July 15, 2012).

Psychologists John O'Keefe (UK) and wife and husband May‐Britt and Edvard Moser (Norway) from the University of Trondheim won this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine for discovering an “inner GPS” in the brain.
O'Keefe's pioneering work in 1971 was confirmed a generation later, in 2005, by the Mosers, making a considerable contribution to behavioural science.
This year´s Nobel Laureates receive the prize for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain. They have discovered a positioning system, an “inner GPS” in the brain that makes it possible to orient ourselves in space, demonstrating a cellular basis for higher cognitive function. They discovered how the brain knows where we are and is able to navigate from one place to another. Their findings may help explain why Alzheimer's disease patients cannot recognize their surroundings.
