The theme of the Singapore Conference on Applied Psychology 2020 is “Psychological Well-being”.
We invite researchers and practitioners from all fields of psychology research and practice to present and discuss recent innovations, trends, concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Applied Psychology, with a special focus on psychological well-being. This can include clinical and non-clinical psychological well-being and we encourage submissions that cross disciplines, for example psychological well-being in education and the workplace. Furthermore, we welcome submissions from a range of methodological approaches, including quantitative and qualitative work.
Join us for this exciting Applied Psychology Conference from 18th to 19th June 2020 at the Furama Riverfront hotel in Singapore.

Dr Carrie Childs
Senior Lecturer, School of Human Sciences, University of Derby
Dr Carrie Childs is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Derby, United Kingdom. She completed her Doctoral degree at Loughborough University. As a social psychologist with a strong qualitative background, she has focused her research on how
language is used to negotiate relationships, actions and events in our everyday lives. Carrie has a long standing research interest in sexuality issues. Her past work has explored interaction between police officers and children reporting alleged sexual offences. More recently, she has turned her attentions to social constructions of sexuality, particularly the marginalisation of non-normative sexual practices and relationships. Her current work explores discursive constructions of ‘sex addiction’ in the accounts of women who identify as being sexually addicted.
