NEW for 2017: The ADDICTION DEBATE
‘This Society believes it is appropriate to expand the concept of addiction to behaviours such as internet use’
With Professor Robert West & Professor Mark Griffiths
New for 2017, the SSA’s PhD Symposium will be held the day before our annual Conference, in the same venue.
The SSA’s symposium for PhD students is now in its ninth year. This event aims to bring together PhD students studying addiction-related topics so they can network, present their work in a low-key, supportive environment and share their ups and downs. It welcomes full and part-time students, studying in a range of disciplines including social sciences, laboratory sciences and health services research. The day includes presentations from students at various stages in the PhD process and some close to or who have recently submitted their thesis.
There is a social event in the evening of the PhD Symposium, and throughout the day there is plenty of opportunity to talk to other delegates.
