Dear friends,

Please accept this invitation on behalf Department of Educational psychology and Helth psychology, Faculty of Arts at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice and Institute of Psychological Prevention ngo to join us in Košice, Slovakia, November 25-27, 2010, for the second symposium on Substance Use and Abuse among University Students.

The theme of this year is “Life Perspective and Health Related Behavior of Students”.

This upcoming symposium creates an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas, insights and experience regarding students’ health behavior and its correlates. It is also a great opportunity for meeting researchers and practitioners from different parts of Europe who share common research interests and are looking forward to creating networks based on international and multi-disciplinary cooperation.

Papers addressing any cross-disciplinary perspective including epidemiological, psychological, medical, aetiological or social science studies are very welcome. Papers that address new and innovative approaches of research or target group-oriented interventions are especially welcome. Professionals/ practitioners are encouraged to send in proposals.

Symposium topics:

  • Epidemiology
  • Methodology and research
  • Prevention and education
  • Early brief interventions
  • Counselling/treatment
  • Further to its scientific content, ESSUS2010 is a networking event. Initiation of cross-boarder co-operations between scientists and institutions will be also facilitated.
