Social Media Winter School

Published on December 21, 2023 – This year, the EHPS Winter School “Health Psychology in the Age of Social Media” is organized in collaboration with the Amsterdam Center for Health Communication. This two-day event will be facilitated by ACHC-member Eline Smit and Thomas Gültzow (Open University of the Netherlands), who are respectively the former and current chair of the EHPS Special Interest Group on Digital Health and Computer-Tailoring.

During the winter school, participants will delve into the realm of health psychological research on social media. Special emphasis will be on diverse methodologies, ranging from content analysis and data donation to the measurement of antecedents and effects of social media use through neuroimaging and self-report methodologies.

The winter school is for anyone interested in health psychological research on social media, including people who have just started dipping their toes in the water (e.g., PhD students) and those with substantial experience (e.g., post-docs to professors). During the event, there will be plenty opportunity to form new working groups to discuss ideas, in addition to interactive workshops to provide and receive feedback on ongoing research. There will be a mix between didactic content (including some guest talks from delegates), discussion, collaborative working, and networking.

The event will take place on the 28th & 29th of February 2024 in Amsterdam. If you’re interested in attending, please complete the application form. Applications are due by Weds 24 Jan 2024 (23:59 hrs GMT). The workshop fee is €200.
