Like any science, much potential would be wasted if psychology were not disclosed. It is one thing to make progress based on research that only a few understand, but the important thing is that this knowledge reaches as many people as possible. And, in this sense, the conferences are a great help.
In this article we will see a summary of the main lecturers of Psychology both in the Spanish-speaking world and internationally.
The most interesting Psychology lecturers
Why do conferences have a special value? This way of communicating is unique, because it leaves enough space and time to communicate complex ideas in a way that, unlike what happens with books, allows you to transmit emotions in a very simple and almost immediate way.
Of course, literature has a great power to transmit culture, but a good conference is able, in a few minutes, to make us rethink beliefs that were strongly rooted in our identity and we discover facts and events that change our way of seeing life.
The sum of what is said with what is said is crucial to appeal to our feelings, and conferences achieve this by combining scenic elements with non-verbal language, the fact of seeing a person of flesh and blood showing their own ideas live and, of course, the power of what they say, their message.
That said, let’s see which are the most important Psychology lecturers, mentioning first the Spanish speakers.
1. Nacho Coller
In addition to expert psychologist in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Nacho Coller is an expert in terms of expressing ideas transmitting what Psychology tells us about us, on the one hand, and his own philosophy of life and personal experiences, for the other.
