The 5th International Conference on Social Identity and Health (ICSIH-5) showcases the latest social identity and health research to an international audience of academics and health professionals. This new paradigm within Social Psychology, referred to as the ‘Social Cure’, articulates the ways in which social groups impact on health and well-being. Social Cure insights are increasingly being adopted in clinical, health, sport, and organisational settings. ICSIH-5 builds on the success of previous events held in Exeter (2012), Ottawa (2014), Brisbane (2016), and Lausanne (2018).
The aim of the 5th International Conference on Social Identity and Health is to showcase the latest research on social identity and health to an international audience. The event is aimed at psychologists and other academics working in this field alongside health and social care professionals. Over the course of two days, attendees will learn about the latest ‘Social Cure’ research applied to the areas of: mental health, sport and exercise, physical activity, social prescribing, successful ageing, families and young people, and community health. This research is aligned to, and informed by, real-world health issues and attendees will be able to apply knowledge to important challenges including tackling loneliness, building resilient communities, and creating inclusive services.
There will be a strong focus on networking and the conference will include interactive workshops that will consider how to apply ‘Social Cure’ principles in real-world settings.
Our keynote speakers include:
Dr Mark Tarrant (University of Exeter Medical School) who will present an evidence-based approach to the design of group-based health interventions that ensures the group becomes a powerful resource for supporting health.
Mr James Sanderson (Director of Personalised Care at NHS England and Improvement) who will discuss the use of social prescribing to tackle public health issues as part of the delivery of Universal Personalised Care.
