CHACDOC (Cultural-historical approaches to children's development and childhood) is a Section within ISCAR which specifically examines activity theory and cultural-historical psychology in relation to the study of children's lives and their environment.

The theme of the symposium is: Creativity and imitation in childhood.

Plan for the symposium:

On the first day we have invited Professors Fernando Gonzales Rey, Gennady Kravtsov, Elena Kravtsova, and Vladimir Zinchenko to present papers on motives, emotions and values. These will become chapters in a book to be published at Cambridge Univerity Press entitled: Motives, Emotions and Values in the Development of Children and Young People (edited by Mariane Hedegaard, Anne Edwards, and Marilyn Fleer). We will then join them for dinner in the evening.

On the second day of the meeting of CHACDOC the theme of the program will be featured. We will begin with presentations by professor Karin Aronsson, professor Elena Kravtsova and professor Bert van Oers, followed by poster presentations by other delegates.
