Summit meeting for psychiatry and psychotherapy 

It’s happening in autumn 2017: the WPA WORLD CONGRESS OF PSYCHIATRY, one of the most important scientific congresses. Where does the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy stand today? What demands are being made of the field? What can it do? And what impulses can be expected from medical research? Under the overall theme “Psychiatry of the 21st Century: Context, Controversies and Commitment” international experts from science, politics and society will deal with these complex issues and examine them from various perspectives.
