Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 1stEuropean Congress on Clinical Psychology and Psychological Treatment of EACLIPT (http://eaclipt.org/), which will take place from 31 October – 2 November 2019 in Dresden, Germany: http://www.clinicalpsychologycongress2019.eu.

Submissions for symposia and poster presentations are now open (submission deadlines 30 May and 14 June, respectively). We invite submissions on the full range of clinical psychological research: diagnostics and classification, psychological and psychobiological mechanisms, psychological treatments, prevention and rehabilitation.

The conference theme “No Health without Mental Health – European Clinical Psychology Takes Responsibility” expresses our goal to move mental health into societal focus. Mental disorders are among the most debilitating conditions and clinical psychology offers a wide range of preventive and therapeutic interventions. Discussing these, as well as underlying etiological models will be at the heart of the conference. Keynote speakers include:

  • Claudi Bockting (University of Amsterdam)
  • Susan Bögels (University of Amsterdam)
  • David Clark (University of Oxford)
  • Stefan Hofmann (Boston University)
  • Maria Karekla (University of Cyprus).

We particularly encourage early career researchers to join the conference. Targeted pre-conference workshops, mentoring and financial support can be offered. The conference will be a unique chance to discuss current challenges for mental health in Europe and initiate collaborations and joint projects with colleagues from all over the continent. 

Please forward this message in your communities. We are looking forward to seeing you in Dresden!
