Psychology Days in Zadar is an international conference organized biennially by the Department of Psychology of the University of Zadar. It started over 40 years ago, first as a regional meeting, but soon grew to become a reputable international meeting. Its quality was recognized by many participants, whose large responsiveness is an incentive to members of the Department for further improvement in the organization and realization of this event.
The 22nd Psychology Days conference in Zadar was held on October 01-03, 2020. It was organized by an international organizational-scientific committee which faced specific challenges in organizing conference during COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the COVID-19-related safety measures and restrictions, the conference has been transformed into virtual meeting. This resulted in significant challenges caused by differences in time zones and difficulties in engaging and socializing people in an online event. Being aware that networking and professional development opportunities are particularly valuable for conference attendees, it took the organizational-scientific committee an extra work to replicate these experiences online. Despite this, the committee overcame these challenges and organized another successful international conference in Zadar by gathering over 300 active participants from Croatia, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and other countries. Over 130 papers were presented through four invited lectures, seven symposia, nineteen oral sessions, and four poster sessions.
Encouraged by authors` interest and positive experiences regarding previous editions of Book of Selected Proceedings, we have decided to invite authors who participated in 22nd Psychology Days, to send their papers for publishing in the Book of Selected Proceedings of 22nd Psychology Days in Zadar. Each paper underwent a double-blind review process by two experts in the field. List of reviewers can be found at the end of the book. After review process, twelve papers were accepted for publication in the Book of Selected Proceedings of 22nd Psychology Days in Zadar. The selected papers present research from various fields
in psychology, such as personality, organisational and biological psychology, as well as mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. We strongly believe that these studies will make an important and high-quality contribution to the existing base of scientific knowledge.
