ISSBD - About Us
The International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development (ISSBD) was formed on the 19th July, 1972, and seeks to promote scientific research of human development throughout the life span.
ISSBD President, Xinyin Chen of University of Pennsylvania, USA, reports on recent activities of ISSBD and its members, as well as looking ahead to the future.
The ISSBD was founded in May, 1969. Its constitution was ratified in July, 1972 and the society received the Royal Assent of the Queen of The Netherlands in February, 1973.
By-Laws were ratified by the membership of the Society meeting at Pavia, Italy in September, 1977, with the latest changes to the by-Laws approved by the ISSBD membership via mail ballot in the fall of 1992. The full By-Laws and Constitution of the Society are reproduced here.
