Newsletter October 2019

EFPA Board Human Rights and Psychology -  Newsletter Year 3 Edition 10 - October 2019

The October Newsletter of the EFPA Board Human Rights and Psychology contains this time not only articles written in English. As all of us can use online translation tools, other languages will broaden the scope of this Newsletter.
