Welcome to EHPS 2019


The Croatian Psychological Association is honoured and delighted to host the 2019 annual conference of the European Health Psychology Society from the 3rd – 7th of September 2019. The 2019 conference is the 33rd EHPS annual conference. The conference theme is Individuals and Professionals: Cooperation to Health.

The Croatian Psychological Association, established in 1953, is the major professional organisation of Croatian psychologists. Health psychologists in Croatia are very well represented in the Croatian Psychological Association, and its Division of Health Psychology (since 1992). Health psychology in Croatia is present in the higher education system (since 1986) – at graduate and postgraduate psychology programmes and applied health sciences programmes, in research, and to a growing extent in practice.

The Organising Committee looks forward to welcoming you in Dubrovnik, the priceless jewel of the Croatian Adriatic coast and the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of Europe’s most fashionable and popular tourist destinations, at the largest conference venue in Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik. We shall do our best to enable the professional and scientific exchange, and meeting colleagues from different environments and countries, at the 33rd EHPS annual conference in 2019!

George Bernard Shaw once wrote, “Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”, due to its profound beauty and historic magic.


The old city of Dubrovnik, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.


Croatia has over 1250 km of modern highways most of which were built in the early 2000s.
