Second Festival of Psychology in FVG – From Beliefs to Psychological Sciences

From 25th August to 20th November 2020

2nd Festival of Psychology in FVG

The 2nd Festival of Psychology in FVG proposes a series of scientific and cultural events that highlight the distance between the developed knowledge of scientific psychology and people’s erroneous beliefs about psychological phenomena.
The aim of the Festival is to foster the development of critical thinking and to help overcome the prejudice that there is no difference between common sense and psychological knowledge.

Each event proposes a reflection on a different belief, integrating scientific interventions with artistic contributions (theatre, cinema, music).

The programme includes 6 appointments in 6 different cities in the region: the first was held in Trieste on 25th August in the Teatrino Franco and Franca Basaglia at Parco di San Giovanni. The schedule of upcoming events follows.
