EASP Preconference on Self and Identity

The International Society for Self and Identity (ISSI) presents its 5th preconference to an EASP General Meeting, held on June 30th 2023. Self and identity are classic and central concepts in basic social psychology and they both have far-reaching behavioural consequences, including behaviours of utmost social relevance today such as substance use and environmentalism.


Invited Talks

This preconference contains 7 invited talks on a broad range of topics, all from a self and/or identity perspective. Topics include identity integration, moral identity, narcissism, pro-environmental identity, and self-regulation. Please find the names of the speakers below in a table that describes the schedule of the preconference.
