Росарио 1 (Студентски град) веднага след Общото отчетно-изборно събрание на членовете на Дружеството на психолозите в България. След интерактивното представяне на есетата, аудиторията на уъркшопа след социометричен избор определи победителите в конкурса. Както и през 2014 г. , и тази година те са двама:
