2022 has entered the middle and late stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we seem to be accustomed to the existence of the epidemic, the epidemic is still affecting our daily life and mental health wellness in various aspects, and new problems are also emerging.

The Fourth Columbia China Psychology Forum will hold online with four discussions, focusing on mental health wellness after the pandemic, career challenges for international students, challenges in interpersonal relationships, and 10 thousand possibilities of Psychology. Scholars, psychologists, and leading figures in the field of psychology from the U.S. and China will share their insights and expertise on how to maintain a balanced and healthy state of mind during an epidemic.

In addition, the forum will also host an online networking session to provide opportunities for participants to connect with experts and discuss career development.

The forum is organized by the International Student Psychology Association (ISPA), a student-run organization of Teachers College, Columbia University dedicated to the mental health of international students, promoting both academic dialogues and networking, and is co-sponsored by Columbia Global Centers | Beijing.
