First Interdisciplinary Congress on Psychiatry and Related Sciences
It is a special pleasure to invite psychiatrists, basic and clinical neuroscientists, social and behavioural scientists as well as any professional involved in mental health to a joint congress event consisting of the 'World Psychiatric Association Thematic Conference on Intersectional Collaboration: The Multidisciplinary Facets of Psychiatry', the 'Fourth European Congress of the International Neuropsychiaric Association: Overlap and Integration in Neuropsychiatry' and the 'First Interdisciplinary Congress on Psychiatry and Related Sciences'. These congresses are organised jointly by the World Psychiatric Association (WPA), the International Neuropsychiatric Association (INA) and the Hellenic Society for the Advancement of Psychiatry and Related Sciences (HSAPRS); moreover, they are being co-sponsored by the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry (WFSBP) and supported by the World Association for Psychosocial Rehabilitation (WAPR), the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA), the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy (EABCT) and the European Family Therapy Association (EFTA). Having been honoured through the active engagement of so many respectable international scientific organisations, our main aim is to promote the interface and interaction among various disciplines as they relate to Psychiatry. As ambitious as it might be, our effort in planning the congress programme shall be to seek for any convergence of these disciplines in quest of constructive synthesis, which could eventually lead to the betterment of research outcome and clinical care in Psychiatry.
The joint congress you are invited to will take place in Athens from 29 November to 2 December 2012 and it is hosted by HSAPRS. It actually represents a continuation of a series of biannual congresses which had been regularly organised by HSAPRS since 2004 under the rubric 'Psychiatry and the Neurosciences'. While the four previous congresses had already a quite wide scope, it became evident by its organizers that the thematic spectrum, which should cover relevant interdisciplinary aspects of Psychiatry, is much larger indeed. In response to this fact, the 2012 congress evolves as a thematically enlarged scientific event in order to serve the above mentioned purpose, mainly within a continuing education programme format. The many prominent scientists who will feature as our guest speakers and who will share with us their knowledge and experience are the best guarantee toward this aim; yet, we kindly request and count on your active participation through the presentation of your work on any of the topics listed in this brochure. Your submissions will be most welcome and your particular contributions highly appreciated.
The hosts shall spare no effort in making your participation scientifically rewarding and meaningful and your stay in Athens as enjoyable as possible. We are confident that you will carry pleasant memories of this occasion. So just reserve your dates; we are looking forward to welcoming you in Athens.
