The PSI Early Graduate Group Conference is now in its fourth year and has become an established part of the conference calendar for early career psychologists.
The conference consists of keynote addresses by prominent members of the psychology community, followed by oral and poster presentations by delegates, and hands-on workshops with a diverse range of experienced facilitators to help delegates practically improve their clinical, research and career skills.
The conference provides early career psychologists with the opportunity to present their work, share experiences with their peers, and network with more experienced colleagues.

Learning outcomes
Attendees will have the opportunity to present their original research in oral and poster presentations, providing them with valuable experience and practical skills in science communication and research dissemination. It will also allow them to keep abreast of current trends in Irish psychological research and identify opportunities for future collaborations.

Keynote and workshop sessions will also provide practical skills to enhance attendee’s knowledge and employability. Workshops are yet to be finalised but we anticipate specific sessions on maximising the benefits of Assistant Psychology positions, psychometrics and health service evaluation.

Specific learning from workshop and keynote sessions will be applicable in clinical and research settings, as attendees will receive instruction in useful skills around health service evaluation and psychometrics, which they can put to use in their own work. Networking with peers in the area will also allow for reflection on their own work and opportunities to build their skills in the future, which is a valuable process in research and especially clinical settings.
