The conference is run jointly with the EHPS and the British Psychological Society: Division of Health Psychology (DHP), which celebrates its 30th anniversary next year.

It will be held in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Applied Health Sciences, which will host a range of workshops prior to the main event on 22 and 23 August.

Chair of EHPS Conference 2016 and chair in Health Psychology at the University of Aberdeen, Professor Marijn de Bruin, said: "The theme of this conference aims to focus on what health psychology has already done, and what it can do in the future, to positively impact people’s health and the quality and efficiency of health services.

"It is exciting that the Aberdeen Health Psychology Group from the University of Aberdeen can organise this conference in Aberdeen in 2016, receiving the 1,000-plus members from both organisations."

Graeme Cumming, interim managing director of AECC, added: "We are delighted to be welcoming EHPS and DHP to the centre in 2016. They will be joining a strong host of association conferences who have chosen AECC in 2016, such as the Junior Chamber and Intelligent Energy. AECC have been working continuously to bring association conferences to Aberdeen, which sees a considerable boost in both economic impact and business tourism in the region."
