About the Conference

Digital 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 us 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. 

Conference Organiser: Sigmund Freud University Milano

Sigmund Freud University is a private international university with headquarters in Vienna and a network of departments in Berlin, Paris, Ljubljana and Milan.

Founded in 2005 with an international development programme, it is now recognised in Austria as a reference institution for training, research and clinical activity in the psychological field. Today, Sigmund Freud University has about 5.000 students and supports teaching activities with clinical interventions in psychology clinics for adults, children and migrants for a total of about 2.500 users per year. The SFU Headquarters campus is located in the Prater Park near the University of Vienna’s Economics Campus.

As a result of the encounter between consolidated Viennese tradition and a group of qualified Italian professionals, researchers, psychologists and psychotherapists, SFU Milan, the Italian headquarters of Sigmund Freud University, was founded in 2014.

SFU Milan offers Bachelor’s (Bachelorstudium Psychologie) and Master’s (Masterstudium Psychologie) degrees in Psychology with two different clinical programs. At the end of the course of study, students receive a double-value certificate: degrees obtained in accordance with the Austrian academic system are also officially accredited in Italy.
