Great Community Fair International Meeting of Psychology Students.
It arises in 2018, as one of the activities of the 10th edition of the International Meeting of Psychology Students. Its main purpose is community work through different actions designed from the multidisciplinary relationship for all age groups. In its second edition, held in October 2020, due to the epidemiological situation caused by the COVID-19, it was developed in the virtual space.
🙆🏿♀️Do you know what actions were developed during COVID-19?
Through different social networks, more than 60 publications were made on different topics dedicated to families with preschool and school-age children, adolescents, young people, middle-aged and older adults. Its fundamental objectives: to promote psychological well-being, to foster cognitive and social skills and to provide tools for a better development of daily life. In October, 17 virtual experiential workshops were held, coordinated by students and professionals. They constituted spaces of learning and exchange on diverse topics to provide support and accompaniment to the communities, and in this way favor physical and mental well-being. In addition, some students, organizers of the fair, supported the Akokán project in the writing of the newsletter Akokán en Casa.
🙋🏻♂️What do they need for their future development?
The aspirations of the organizers of the GFC are: that the community actions become part of the life and daily routine of the Faculty of Psychology and extend to other faculties from the fields of action of the different careers of the University and other universities. To achieve this, cooperative work among students, professors, institutions and projects is fundamental, as well as the formation of alliances that will last for the benefit of the communities.
