Since we do not have a National Health Psychology Organization, relevant activities were organized as extensions of other psychology associations which were directly involved in health studies or which supported the development of academicians in the field. Below are some significant instances among these activities.
In 2005, SASBIL (Association of Social Sciences for Health) got in charge at the organization of “Health Challenges in the Third Millenium”. At that conference, “life style and health session” was held by Prof. Zuhal Baltaş, İstanbul University. Prof. Icek Ajzen, University of Massachusetts, Prof. Stanton Newman, UCL, were invited academicians for the session.
Turkish Psychological Association organized a certificate program in İstanbul between November 2006 and February 2007.
A health psychology symposium was held between December 6-7, 2012 at Fatih University, İstanbul, aiming to introduce the subfields of health psychology and its interdisciplinary nature.
Between 26 January and 10 February 2013, Association of Social Sciences for Health (SASBİL) organized a qualitative research methods course for researchers studying and working in the field of health, with the collaboration of Semahat Arsel Nursing Education and Research Center (SANERC). The course included three modules; an introductory session, research design and data collection, data analysis and report writing.
