Track 13: Educational & Evolutional Psychology

Evolutionary educational psychology is the study of the relation between inherent folk knowledge and abilities and accompanying inferential and attributional biases as these influence academic learning in evolutionarily novel cultural contexts, such as schools and the industrial workplace.

It is a theoretical approach to psychology that attempts to explain useful mental and psychological traits such as memory, perception, or language as adaptations, i.e., as the functional products of natural selection.

Psychologists working in this field believe that most human behavior can be explained by understanding psychological processes; that the behaviors we exhibit today are a result of the evolutionary pressures faced by our ancestors. Individuals displaying such psychological characteristics historically had a benefit in terms of survival and reproduction, leading in turn to the natural selection of these traits within the population as a whole. The basic research they are conducting is providing a new and interesting perspective on why people take the actions they do, and the potential evolutionary psychology reasons behind human behaviour.

Track 14: Addiction Research & Therapy

Addiction is a medical condition that is characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences. It is a disorder of the brain's reward system which arises through transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms and occurs over time from chronically high levels of exposure to an addictive stimulus.

Addiction results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others.

Approximately 3 out of every 100 Canadians are dependent on alcohol or drugs and 3 out of 100 Canadians have problems with gambling. Nicotine is also a major addiction in Canada, with about 17% of Canadians smoking regularly.

Psychiatrists in particular are interested in descriptive psychopathology, which has the aim of describing the psychiatric symptoms and syndromes of mental illness.

Track 18: Developmental and Counseling Psychology

Originally concerned with infants and children, the field has expanded to include adolescence, adult development, aging, and the entire lifespan. Developmental psychology helps us understand how a person grows, ages, and develops during different stages in his life. Understanding this allows us to live our lives to the fullest potential possible.

Developmental psychologists study a wide range of theoretical areas, such as biological, social, emotion, and cognitive processes. A developmental psychologist will usually specialize in certain ages and stages during people's lives. The duties and responsibilities of a developmental psychologist will often vary, depending on his specialty. A professional specializing in childhood development, for example, may evaluate children to determine whether or not they have developmental disabilities. On the other hand, a developmental psychologist specializing in older adults may try to find ways that make it easier for elderly people to live more independently. Empirical research in this area tends to be dominated by psychologists from Western cultures such as North American and Europe, although during the 1980s Japanese researchers began making a valid contribution to the field.

Counseling psychology is a claim to fame inside expert psychology that keeps up an attention on encouraging individual and interpersonal working over the life expectancy. The strength gives careful consideration to enthusiastic, social, professional, instructive, wellbeing related, formative, and hierarchical concerns. It concentrates on how individuals work both by and by and in their connections at all ages. Counseling psychology addresses the passionate, social, work, school and physical wellbeing concerns individuals may have at various stages in their lives, concentrating on common life burdens and more serious issues with which individuals may battle as people and as a piece of families, gatherings and associations. Advising clinician’s individuals with physical, enthusiastic and psychological well-being issues enhance their feeling of well‐being, ease sentiments of misery and resolve emergencies. They likewise give appraisal, finding, and treatment of more extreme mental manifestations & psychological symptoms.

Why Toronto, Canada

Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located in Southern Ontario on the north-western shore of Lake Ontario. The earlier name of Toronto is York during late 18th century; the city was ransacked in the Battle of York during the War of 1812. In 1834, York became a city and renamed to Toronto. Toronto is a clean, safe cosmopolitan city with a wonderful network of parks, recreational, and cultural facilities. Toronto is the home of four professional sports teams and the third largest English-speaking theatre district in the world, behind New York and London. One of the world’s most ethnically diverse cities, it is home to more than 80 ethnic communities from Africa, Asia, and Europe. Toronto is also the business centre of Canada.

Toronto is the leading tourism destination in Canada, attracting more than 25 million Canadian, American and international visitors annually (Tourism Toronto, 2012). In 2012, the Toronto region welcomed 9.9 million overnight visitors. Visitors to Toronto spend about $5.1 billion in direct expenditures during their visits. Visitors to the Toronto region support more than 329,000 people who work in tourism and hospitality. Based on 2013 estimates, Toronto welcomed 13.69 million overnight visitors. 1.42 million visitors arrived from overseas markets (all countries other than Canada and the U.S.) with a further 2.18 million Americans staying overnight – a 1.7 per cent increase over 2012 and a 9.7 per cent increase over 2010 (Tourism Toronto, 2013).The U.K. remains Toronto's largest overseas visitor market with 201,000 arrivals in 2013.

There a large number of institutes and associations in Canada dealing with the researches on Psychology with psychological disorder patients. Moreover, there have been many public and patient psychology knowledge translation programmes organised in Canada, to improve self-efficacy in the prevention & management of psychological & mental disorders.

These developments and their corresponding consequences have accompanied Canada in becoming a recognized world leader in Positive psychology & Psychotherapy. Thus, Canada has been chosen to conduct the conference Positive Psychology-2017.

The economic cost of mental illnesses in Canada for the health care system was estimated to be at least $7.9 billion in 1998 – $4.7 billion in care, and $3.2 billion in disability and early death. An additional $6.3 billion was spent on uninsured mental health services and time off work for depression and distress that was not treated by the health care system.

In 1999, 3.8% of all admissions in general hospitals (1.5 million hospital days) were due to anxiety disorders, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, major depression, personality disorders, eating disorders and suicidal behavior. Sources: The Report on Mental Illness in Canada, October 2002. EBIC 1998 (Health Canada 2002), Stephens et al., 2001

It is estimated that 10-20% of Canadian youth are affected by a mental illness or disorder – the single most disabling group of disorders worldwide.

Today, approximately 5% of male youth and 12% of female youth, age 12 to 19, have experienced a major depressive episode. The total number of 12-19 year olds in Canada at risk for developing depression is a staggering 3.2 million. Once depression is recognized, help can make a difference for 80% of people who are affected, allowing them to get back to their regular activities.

Mental illness is increasingly threatening the lives of our children; with Canada’s youth suicide rate the third highest in the industrialized world. Suicide is among the leading causes of death in 15-24 year old Canadians, second only to accidents; 4,000 people die prematurely each year by suicide.

Schizophrenia is youth’s greatest disabler as it strikes most often in the 16 to 30 year age group, affecting an estimated one person in 100. Surpassed only by injuries, mental disorders in youth are ranked as the second highest hospital care expenditure in Canada. Globally, depression affects about 400 million, dementia affects about 35 million, while Schizophrenia which affects about 21 million people. Unipolar (also known as Major) depressive disorder is the third leading cause of disability worldwide, of any condition mental or physical, accounting for 65.5 million years lost. Overall list, responsible for 23.7 million DALYs globally, while other drug-use disorders accounted for 8.4 million. Schizophrenia causes a total loss of 16.8 million DALY, and bipolar disorder 14.4 million. Panic disorder leads to 7 million years lost, obsessive-compulsive disorder 5.1, primary insomnia 3.6, and post-traumatic stress disorder 3.5 million daily. Over one’s entire lifetime, the average American has a 47.4 percent chance of having any kind of mental health disorder

In Canada, only 1 out of 5 children who need mental health services receives them. Schizophrenia affects 1% of the Canadian population. Anxiety disorders affect 5% of the household population, causing mild to severe impairment. Suicide accounts for 24% of all deaths among 15-24 year olds and 16% among 25-44 year olds. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in both men and women from adolescence to middle age.

Mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time through a family member, friend or colleague.

• Mental illness affects people of all ages, educational and income levels, and cultures.

• Approximately 8% of adults will experience major depression at some time in their lives.

• About 1% of Canadians will experience bipolar disorder (or “manic depression”).

In any given year, one in five people in Canada experiences a mental health problem or illness, with a cost to the economy of well in excess of $50 billion.

• Only one in three people who experience a mental health problem or illness and as few as one in four children or youth — report that they have sought and received services and treatment.

Funding

In the OECD, around two-thirds of research and development in scientific and technical fields is carried out by industry, and 20% and 10% respectively by universities and government, although in poorer countries. Often research funding is applied for by scientists and approved by a granting agency to financially support research. These grants require a lengthy process as the granting agency can inquire about the researcher(s)'s background, the facilities used, the equipment needed, the time involved, and the overall potential of the scientific outcome. The process of grant writing and grant proposing is a somewhat delicate process for both the granter and the grantee: the granter wants to choose the research that best fits their scientific principles, and the grantee wants to apply for research in which she has the best chances but also in which she can build a body of work towards future scientific endeavours. This interplay can be a frustrating and lengthy process.
