  • International Congress

    XXVth International Congress of Psychology Brussels, July 19-24, 1992 The International Congress of Psychology in Brussels attracted many thousands of participants from more than 70 countries. There were more than 700 participants from the United States. It was the first time that so many psychologists from East Europe tried to attend the meeting.

The Brussels success could be attributed to careful preparation of the scientific program; the preparations took more than four years.
