About EPPN

The EPPN is a forum to bring together scientists and clinicians devoted to research and evidence-based health care within paediatric psychology.


  1. Integrate and strengthen networks of paediatric psychology across Europe
  2. Promote collaboration between EPPN and paediatric psychologists and their networks around the world.


The EPPN seeks to grow awareness and utilization of Paediatric Psychology across Europe. Through seminars, conferences and outreach, the EPPN stimulates international collaboration, disseminates scientific findings, and contributes to the development of knowledge and evidence-based health care in the field of paediatric psychology.

Keep an eye out for the first EPPN newsletter coming out soon, and other EPPN activities!
