Venue: ISCTE-IUL; Paquete de Oliveira Auditorium
Format: Talk
Registration:Please email Marco Rego, ISCTE-IUL's Pscyhology PhD program manager, to register.

Abstract:
In Portugal, childcare centers are an important resource for families with young children. Transition from home to child care represents a challenge for children, families and professionals. The purpose of this conference is to present the research project "Infant transition to childcare: parent-caregiver communication, early education quality and infant adjustment" and some of its main results, as well as implications for future research and practice.


Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Pain: Contributing Factors and Innovative Solutions

Speaker: Adam T. Hirsh (Dep. of Psychology, Indiana University; Purdue University)
Date and time: 24/10/19; 14h00m
Venue: ISCTE-IUL; Caiano Pereira Auditorium
Format: Talk
Registration:Please email Marco Rego, ISCTE-IUL's Pscyhology PhD program manager, to register.

Abstract:
This presentation provides an overview of patient, provider, and socio-contextual factors that contribute to racial and ethnic disparities in pain. It also discusses two innovative interventions using Virtual Patients and Providers aimed at reducing these disparities.


Social stigma and behaviours associated with pain

Speaker: Amanda Williams (Dep. of Psychology, Indiana University; Purdue University)
Date and time: 28/10/19; 14h00m
Venue: ISCTE-IUL; C1.03 Auditorium
Format: Talk
Registration:Please email Marco Rego, ISCTE-IUL's Pscyhology PhD program manager, to register.

Abstract:
Pain can become visible in facial expression, posture and movement, and elicits adverse social judgment as well as empathy from those around. Stigma plays out in clinical encounters as invalidation and labelling, but it can also be structural, disadvantaging certain sections of the population when they seek health care. It needs to be resisted, both at the individual, collective, and structural levels, and particularly by those working in health care.


Systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis in Psychology

Speaker: Fernando Ferreira-Santos (Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences - University of Porto)
Date and time: 21/11/19 - 22/11/19; 10h00m-13h00m, 14h00m-17h00m
Venue: ISCTE-IUL; Paquete de Oliveira Auditorium (day 1), Room D1.10 (morning day 2), Room D1.04 (afternoon day 2)
Format: Workshop
Registration:Please email Marco Rego, ISCTE-IUL's Pscyhology PhD program manager, to register.

Abstract:
In this seminar, we will discuss a) the typology of literature reviews and syntheses (e.g., systematic/non-systematic, narrative/quantitative) and the advantages of systematic reviews ad meta-analyses; and b) the strength of empirical evidence as a function of the quality of studies and respective methodological design. We will then focus on the statistical procedures for the estimation, meta-analytic combination, and analysis of the heterogeneity of effect sizes. These features will be complemented with pratical exercises.
